I have chosen to champion World Shorebirds Day because it is an organisation that each September celebrates waders (shorebirds) and those trying to conserve them. Waders often migrate long distances along nine flyways worldwide. They stop off to rest in different places along the flyways, making them vulnerable to habitat disturbance and hunting. This has made many endangered. World Shorebirds Day is to show how important bird surveying is so that people who don’t normally count birds can improve and that the number involved worldwide increases.
