The program “Pass to life”, on rising the productivity of spoon-billed sandpiper, started in Chukotka in the village of Mainypylgino in 2012. Its initial objectives were to collect bird eggs; to incubate them artificially; to raise the chicks and then to release the chicks into nature.
The number of spoon-billed sandpipers dropped dramatically in the 20th century – 90% just for the last 30 years.
This species disappears very fast and if the humans don’t take any steps to protect it, then the spoon-billed sandpiper is to vanish in 10-15 years.
This international project “Pass to life” runs with the great support of the British Royal Birds Preservation Society and Chukotka government.
The participants of the project have been coming to the radio “Radio Purga” after the finish of their filed season in Mainypylgino and share their stories.
