Save the Baer´s Pochard!


Our new stickers are printed! In Russian language, they say:

"Only here: Baer´s Pochard. Muraviovka Park is home for many globally endangered species. Illegal hunting is the major threat for wild ducks and geese."

Big thanks to Zhang Ming and the Baer´s Pochard Task Force for the photo, to Robert Heim for the design and to Juliana Nefjodowa for translation and of course to The Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund for financial support.

We are going to spread them among locals during our work in the Amur region in 2016. Our survey this year failed to find a single Baer´s Pochard, the situation for this critically endangered species seems to be worse than expected!
