As Birdlife Species Champion for the Spoonbilled Sandpiper, and our longstanding support of the programme being undertaken in Far East Russia and linked with WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre in the UK, we are pleased to see the birds are gaining wider protection around their wintering habitat.

We offer several opportunities on our Far East Russia voyages to be actively involved with the project, working alongside experts.  Contact us at for more information, or check our Far East Russia voyages here.
