International Wader Study Group


Name: International Wader Study Group
Acronym: IWSG
Website: http://www.waderstudygroup.org/index.php
Geographic Scope: International
Biogeographical Realm: Global
Description: The International Wader Study Group is an organisation of enthusiastic professionals and amateurs researching waders, also called shorebirds. The involvement of the members of the IWSG in wader research ranges from observing waders in ones own ‘backyard’ to extensive, long-term studies aiming at a deeper understanding of spectacular wader phenomena like long-distance migration, living in extreme environments and variable reproductive strategies.

The aims of the International Wader Study Group are to:
  • maintain contact between both amateurs and professionals studying waders
  • help organise co-operative studies; and
  • provide a vehicle for exchange of information on waders and their biology.
The organization was called the Wader Study Group until it changed its name in 2001.
Status: Active
