Connecting Communities Across the Americas
The migration of shorebirds across the globe is one of nature's greatest events and a reminder of our shared responsibility.
We just completed a survey season with shorebird counts occurring across 10 countries with over 2 million shorebirds recorded between November 2014 and February 2015.
