On 1st November 2012 Wader Quest was born; the idea being to travel the world, visiting the six major continents on which waders/shorebirds can be found with a view to seeing as many of them as we possibly could, whilst engaging with local communities through talks, visits and the media.
We had two aims for the quest:
- To raise awareness about the dreadful plight of shorebirds throughout the world, especially those that rely on the inter-tidal zones during their life.
- To raise money to support the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) Spoon-billed Sandpiper captive breeding programme.
We were thrilled that the American Birding Association published our blogs, thus providing a lasting record of our exploits. You can access these through the links below. Our thanks go to the team at ABA for their support during our early days.
