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.
Nice to see our juvenile Spoon-billed Sandpipers at Slimbridge creeping into this @WWTSlimbridge 2020 promotional video. Following in Scott's footsteps, our conservation pioneers @WWTworldwide are helping to #SaveSpoonie
Our Slimbridge 2020 project will transform Slimbridge with new, inspirational and immersive experiences to get you closer to nature. While the project takes shape, let's take a look back at what and who inspired it 👇
Great to use @fidhw @BTOCymru @API_Pontio beautifully made life like Spoon-billed Sandpiper decoys in #China last week, setting them out on the rice paddies over the high tide period at #Tiaozini #SaveSpoonie #Shorebirds @WWTconservation @RSPBScience @KaneBrides @Guy_QA_Anderson2
Collaborating for conservation research again! @BTO_Cymru, @API_Pontio and I, making experimental Spoon-billed Sandpiper decoys to try & help with monitoring work in China. Long process - 3D scan, Fimo modelling (that bill!), 3D edits, print, mount & paint... how did we do? 4
