Working for Waders-Volunteers Wanted

Working for Waders: A Call for Volunteers

Populations of wading birds like curlew, lapwing and oystercatcher have declined markedly across Scotland: since 1994, curlew have declined by 61%, lapwing by 53% and oystercatcher by 40%.

Two workshops, held earlier in 2017, (the overview report is available here) highlighted that there was wide consensus on the need to halt and, where possible, reverse these declines.

The Working for Waders Initiative has been established to bring people together to encourage new ways of thinking and working, especially through the development of collaborative activities and actions on the ground.
