Our Approach

We believe passionately in enabling people to become directly involved in wader conservation, through locally led Community Wader Conservation projects directly supporting the larger conservation bodies in their work. A combined effort of people living in their own community and conservation organisations to protect the delicately balanced places that waders inhabit to prevent them from becoming degraded, polluted or destroyed altogether.


Our Mission

To raise the level of awareness about the crisis facing waders the world over. We aim to do this by promoting the enjoyment, understanding, and protection of waders by engaging people of all ages in birding, education, and conservation with a view to reversing negative trends in wader populations. To accomplish this mission we will:

  • Promote conservation strategies for the protection of waders and demonstrate the value of conservation to the community.
  • Encourage others to educate their community about the benefits of preserving and enjoying waders.
  • Support research into maintaining, restoring, and understanding wader populations.
  • Undertake fundraising when required, and we are able to do so, to support locally driven wader conservation initiatives.
