SUPPORT OUR WORK TO MONITOR THE ENDANGERED GREAT KNOT
THE GREAT KNOT’S MAIN FOOD SOURCE HAS BEEN GREATLY REDUCED. WE MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION TO ENSURE THEIR SURVIVAL FOR NEXT YEAR’S MIGRATION BACK TO HONG KONG.
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SUPPORT OUR MONITORING TEAMS ALONG THE EAST ASIAN-AUSTRALASIAN FLYWAY.
Your contribution will help purchase binoculars and telescopes for our field surveyors to monitor the birds’ activity and cover the teams’ traveling costs.
The endangered great knot feeds almost exclusively on small clams, but for the last six years, the food supply in Yalujiang estuary mudflats dropped by 95 per cent. The birds need supplementary feeding.
The Yalujiang estuary wetland is the most important migratory site for the species, supporting nearly a quarter of the world’s great knot population. Mai Po also supports some of these migratory wading birds in the winter months.
