Win a Lars Jonsson wader poster signed by the great man himself in our Wader Conservation World Watch weekend Prize draw!


It's dead simple, all you have to do is go and look at waders.

Then what?

Send us an email to tell us what you have seen and where! 

How do I enter?

You already have, all reports received will be entered into the draw.

(Draw will be made 16th November)

Lars Jonsson poster. In addition the winner will receive a set of Wader Quest pin badges.

Wherever in the world you happen to be this weekend, on whichever continent, whether you have two full days or just a few minutes to look out for waders please do so and let us know what you have seen.

Wader Conservation World Watch is all about participating and standing up to say 
"We Care!"

We care that the Yellow Sea is being devastated.
We care that 50% of UK lapwings have disappeared.
We care that the Spoon-billed Sandpiper is heading for extinction.
We care that 48% of known wader populations are in decline.
We care that wet meadow nesting chicks are being destroyed by early mowing.
We care that thousands of waders are still hunted.
We care that Hooded Plovers still can't find a place on the beach to breed.
We care that wetlands are being drained.
We care that Black Stilts only cling to existence due to captive breeding.
We care that 6 wader species are Extinct.
We care that 8 wader species are Critically Endangered.
We care that 4 of those are probably Extinct.
We care that 9 wader species are Endangered (2 new recently).
We care that 9 wader species are Vulnerable.
We care that 29 wader species are Near threatened (6 new recently)
and finally 
We care enough to stand up and be counted.

Waders need love too!
Also send your sightings to eBird and/or Bird Track; this helps conservation too!
