Rebecca is a Senior Species Conservation Officer at WWT and a member of the Conservation Breeding team. Her background is in wildlife disease, aviculture and re-introduction policy and she’s got a thing for flamingos. Rebecca is the chair of the Wetlands International/IUCN-SSC Flamingo Specialist Group and works with zoo keepers to improve the care and breeding success of captive flamingos across Europe. She provides logistical support to the expeditions to Russia, ensuring all the correct UK licenses and permits are in place, and overseeing preparations at WWT Slimbridge. The less glamorous aspects of the project!
The spoon-billed sandpiper conservation breeding programme is a collaboration between WWT, Birds Russia, Moscow Zoo and the RSPB working with colleagues from the BTO, BirdLife International, ArcCona and the Spoon-billed Sandpiper Task Force.
