PLEASE JOIN RICK AND ELIS SIMPSON FOR THEIR TALK: WADER QUEST
They aim to raise awareness about diminishing wader populations and threats to the world’s flyways. They are also raising funds for the Wildfowl & Wetland Trust (WWT) captive breeding programme of the Critically Endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper. There are less than 100 pairs of these incredible little birds left in the wild and they are on the 'extinction express'; if we don't do something to help them they will be gone in just a few short years. See:www.waderquest.org
Place: Delta Park Environmental Centre
Date & time: Tuesday 3rd September 2013 at 19h30.
Entrance fee: R20. Tea & coffee will be available
For further information regarding this talk please contact Sue Oertli on either 083 306 8459 or at email@example.com.
