His conservation efforts focus on the huge intertidal mudflats in the area and the waterbirds using this habitat, especially waders. With others, Lin formed a conservation NGO called ‘Spoon-billed Sandpiper in China’ (SBS in China) and their findings are showing that these sites are one of the most important staging areas for the Critically Endangered spoon-billed sandpiper, a critically important location for re-fueling in the Yellow Sea. With spoon-billed sandpipers as a flagship, SBS in China hopes to also help to save many other species at the brink of extinction.
