Hunters for the World Shorebirds Day

There are lots of reasons to be proud of regarding the first World Shorebirds Day, but the reaction of traditional shorebird hunters in Barbados on the celebration surprised everyone! Please read this WHSRN news.

A long journey begins with first steps. Knowing the history here, the fact that any hunters voluntarily held their fire out of respect for shorebirds worldwide, even if for one day, is a giant first step. And, in its own way, perhaps one of the most profound outcomes of World Shorebirds Day. — Wayne Burke, Project Leader of BirdLife International in Barbados
