Monitoring shorebird populations – our new program

With the start of the new year, a new long-term shorebird monitoring program will be launched with a couple of hundreds surveyors and at almost 150 different locations. The goal of this program might be ambitious but the shorebird community always up for the challenge just like we did it with the Global Shorebird Counts during World Shorebirds Day.

The Eurasian Shorebird Survey starts in less than two weeks, aiming to monitor the changes in the populations of migratory and breeding shorebirds, and the condition of their most important habitats.

The number of survey sites are increasing day by day but by the end of the year, it is expected to grow to several hundreds across the Eurasian region. If you feel you could support the program with regular counts, join us by filling the simple registration form. More information of the program can be found here:

Special thanks to the photographers for their photos.
