At the meeting of the EAAFP in Cambodia in December 2010 the Spoon-billed Sandpiper Task Force (SBS TF) was formed and endorsed under the Shorebird Working Group of the Partnership. The Lead Organisation for the EAAFP Spoon-billed Sandpiper Task Force will be BirdLife International through Birds Russia. It will be chaired by the Governmental Partner from Russia and coordinated by Christoph Zöckler on behalf of Birds Russia. Task Force members will consist of EAAFP Governmental Partners of key range, a representative of the EAAFP Shorebird Working Group and experts and conservation organisations from principal range states and other partners. The main aim is to coordinate the conservation activities that have been identified in the CMS Single Species Action Plan for the species that was published by BirdLife International on behalf of the Secretariat of the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) and is being regularly updated.
