YouTube video on the Bangladesh Spoon-billed Sandpiper Conservation Project

Myanmar and Bangladesh support the largest non-breeding populations of Spoon-billed Sandpiper in the world. The Bangladesh Spoon-billed Sandpiper Conservation Project has been working since 2009 to conserve and conduct research on the population that winters along the coast of Bangladesh, especially on Sonadia Island. The video shows the project conducting surveys on the vast intertidal mudflats and taking action to protect Spoon-billed Sandpiper and other shorebirds. The project found that hunting of shorebirds is a serious problem, but since 2011 it has worked successfully to provide alternative income generation options for the hunters.
