Asian Poaching and Subsistence

Nordmann's Greenshank (Tringa guttifer) on its wintering grounds. This species is highly endangered with as few as 1,000 individuals. It's population is suspected to be rapidly decreasing, in line with levels of coastal wetland development throughout Asia for industry, infrastructure and aquaculture, and the degradation of its breeding habitat in Russia by grazing reindeer. Rakhine State, Myanmar. January.
