Rhys has worked on the science needed to conserve bird populations more effectively for 40 years, mostly at the RSPB and the University of Cambridge, UK. He studies the likely effects of conservation actions on the wild population of spoon-billed sandpipers, ways to make more accurate measurements of their population trends, survival and movements, and options for managing the captive population.
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.
