Greetings OE Partners & Friends,
I am writing to make a community announcement and to request your help in support of an initiative for the critically-endangered White-bellied Heron, the second largest heron species in the world, whose last and final population stronghold remains in Bhutan and the Eastern Himalayas. With fewer than 60 known individuals on the planet, the survival of this species lies in the balance as it sits on the verge of extinction.
I have worked on Black-necked crane and White-bellied heron conservation in Bhutan for almost 5 years with an environmental conservation organization called the Royal Society for Protection of Nature (RSPN). They have been dedicated in their work for avian conservation for 30+ years. And yet, In short, they really need some help supporting their efforts for White-bellied Herons. I am hopeful that the online community of ornithologists can provide some support, no matter the amount.
I invite you to take a moment from your day to visit and consider supporting:
If you cannot offer support at this time, would you please consider sharing this link within your personal or professional networks?
Thank you for your consideration and help!
