Sveta is a chairman of local “spoon-billed sandpiper’s friends club”. She implements community monitoring of spoon-billed sandpiper population and environment in Meinopilgyno. She has been in this role from the 2001, when the first ornithologist expedition arrived here. Without her support we could hardly have made this expedition possible. Sveta is really fond of this cute bird.

Only around 200 breeding pairs remain in the wild. Don’t let The Spoon-billed Sandpiper fall off the perch into #extinction. #SaveSpoonie

Great work by @SBS_in_China working on critical sites for waterbirds including #SaveSpoonie @EAAFP
More and more local fishermen communities have joined us for mudflat conservation and a better habitat for waders 🐦 4
