There are just 100 breeding pairs of spoon-billed sandpipers left on earth. That makes them one of the most endangered bird species in the world. Illegal trapping in China could push them over the edge to extinction.
Mist nets – put up to illegally catch birds for the meat industry – catch all shorebirds indiscriminately, including these critically endangered spoon-bill sandpipers and other threatened species. Conservationists in China reported the practice to authorities, but so far their pleas have gone unanswered.
We can help make Chinese officials pay attention by showing them the world is watching and won’t tolerate their laissez-faire attitude.
