Bangladesh Spoon-billed Sandpiper Conservation Project has been working in Bangladesh in an organized manner since 2009. The goal of the project is to conserve and conduct research on the critically endangered Spoon-Billed Sandpipers wintering along the coast of Bangladesh especially on Sonadia island. The project discovered local hunters have been hunting SBS along with other shorebirds.
Here's a video featuring the critically endangered Spoonbill Sandpiper. It's a gorgeous video and at the end shows some chicks taking their first steps out of the nest. We need to learn more about this species full life cycle and it's connectivity. This will aid us in our #conservation efforts and protecting this special #bird.

Limpkin (Aramus guarauna), also called carrao, courlan, and crying bird, is a bird that looks like a large rail but is skeletally closer to cranes. It is the only extant species in the genus Aramus and the family Aramidae. It is found mostly in wetlands in warm parts of the Americas, from Florida to northern Argentina. It feeds on molluscs, with the diet dominated by apple snails of the genus Pomacea. Its name derives from its seeming limp when it walks.
