New Moon On The Wane: The Curse Of The Curlews

This talk looks at why curlew population are falling and talks about each of the species in the genus Numenius drawing on the personal experience of the authors who have travelled around the world to study waders.


Curlew species are declining across the world. Two of them, the Eskimo and Slender-billed Curlew are probably already extinct. The Eurasian Curlew, evocative of coastal estuaries and marshes has seen its population in the UK fall precipitously, to almost half. The UK holds a third of Europe’s breeding population. This talk looks at why curlew population are falling and talks about each of the species in the genus Numenius drawing on the personal experience of the authors who have travelled around the world to study waders.

Rick and Elis are a husband and wife team who dedicate their lives to promoting wader conservation. Rick is a lifelong birder, writer and artist and worked for some time as a bird guide in the UK, Spain and Brazil. Elis is a keen photographer whose main interest is birds and wildlife in general. They founded Wader Quest a non-profit, entirely voluntary, charity dedicated to raising awareness about the problems that waders face across the world and to raising funds to support the Community Wader Conservation projects that protect them.
