British birdfair against extinctions


This video is called Spoon-billed sandpiper: hatch.

From BirdLife:

The 2007 British Birdwatching Fair has provided record funds of £226,000 ($445,000) for BirdLife’s vital conservation work in preventing extinctions. …

This year’s Birdfair will be supporting a suite of species including Sociable Lapwing Vanellus gregarius, Spoon-billed Sandpiper Eurynorhynchus pygmeus, Dwarf Olive Ibis Bostrychia bocagei, Azores Bullfinch Pyrrhula murina, Tuamotu Kingfisher Todiramphus gambieri and Araripe Manakin Antilophia bokermanni by profiling them in the hope that many new Species Champions will step forward to provide further vital funding.
