A Critique of Conservation and Management of Shore-nesting Birds

Jing Li

Abstract


Shorebirds are usually migratory animals that regularly travel between northern and southern parts of the world. In the past few decades, damage and alteration of habitat and the potential problem of population decrease have encouraged more and more people to attach great importance of the management of shorebirds on refuges, and to preserve for both breeding and migrating species. This dissertation chiefly examines the differences between chosen measures for shorebird protection and throws light upon potential knowledge gaps when it comes to management of those creatures. As a result, active measures that can be taken to make significant improvements, for example, learn to recognize potential nesting habitat and built viewing platforms to contain eco-tourists and promote sustainable development.
