Subject: Now! we can buy a land for Spoon-billed Sandpipers


Dear all,


On behalf of Bird Conservation Society of Thailand (BCST, BirdLife partner in Thailand), we would like to announce a important issue for bird conservationist around the globe. The Spoon-billed Sandpiper are NEED your help!!!!!!


Please help to make the first sanctuary for Spoon-billed Sandpipers during winter TOGETHER!!!!!


Bird Conservation Society of Thailand (BCST) has been working on conservation of migratory shorebirds, particularly the globally threatened Spoon-billed Sandpiper, at Pak Thale in Phetchaburi province for over a decade. The main threat
to the survival of these birds are land use change. Migratory shorebirds depend heavily on salt pans as their feeding and high-tide roosting site. The conversion of salt pans to aquaculture ponds, urban area, factories, land mining, etc. is putting the fate
of these globally threatened shorebirds at high risk.


BCST sees the importance of securing habitat for these migratory shorebirds and one way to achieve that is to establish a nature reserve. Because most of the land at Pak Thale are privately owned, BCST has been in negotiation to buy the
land which currently covers approximately 8 hectares of salt pans where Spoon-billed Sandpipers and other shorebirds utilise every winter.


Currently, the land acquisition is largely supported by the Rainforest Trust. However, we still need to raise another 1,500,000 THB (47,000 USD) to fully cover all the costs including future management of the site.


If the fundraising is successful, this will be Thailand's first nature reserve and Spoon-billed Sandpiper's first sanctuary aimed for migratory shorebirds that is managed by a local non-governmental organisation (NGO).
