Saving the Spoon-billed Sandpiper from Extinction



An international team of conservationists is on an emergency mission to help save one of the world’s rarest birds from extinction. Spoon-billed Sandpiper Eurynorhynchus pygmeus is a remarkable bird, but its shocking drop in numbers indicates likely extinction within a decade if urgent action is not taken. The team plans to establish a captive population which will be the source for reintroductions over the coming years, once the threats to the birds and their habitats along their flyway have been sufficiently addressed.
