Farmers can play a major role in conservation

Farmers can play a major role in conservation

Working for Waders is looking for your help. People, with experience, knowledge and some time are needed to identify practical steps to reverse the decline of waders.

We have all agreed that urgent action is required to save the curlew, the lapwing, the golden plover and the other waders whose numbers are dropping. Now is the time to take action. 

You can get involved by joining one of the following three Action Groups:


  • Delivering results-led collaborative action on the ground;
  • Collating data and identifying hot spots and zones for waders; and
  • Raising awareness of the plight of waders and developing and sharing best practice to reverse these declines.
Briefs have been drawn up for each of these Action Groups, giving some outline details on the purpose of each group. Access the briefs here. These briefs have been developed from the ideas raised during the stakeholder workshops held earlier this year. Please help to put these into practice. 

Please put your name forward using this contact form by Wednesday, 25th October, if you would like to join one of these Action Groups.

An interactive map showing all the existing actions and projects contributing to Working for Waders will be available shortly. Many thanks to all who have submitted details on their work, but please let us know if you are involved with wader recovery work but have not yet told us what you are up to. These local projects are a vital part of Working for Waders and will form a core to build out from.
