Jewel of the Russian Far East: Kamchatka Coast

“Unlike anything I have experienced before”

“Dear Rodney I’m now back in the UK, with time to reflect on the amazing experience of the last 2 1/2 weeks.... It was a trip quite unlike anything I had experienced before, to such a remote and exciting place, with wonderful wildlife, scenery, geomorphology, history and culture, that it is difficult to describe it in simple words. I was able to gain a better understanding of spoon-billed sandpiper habitat, and the very challenging operating conditions for working on this iconic species.... Gaining first hand experience of the habitat, survey work, the rather low densities of waders, but the relatively high wader species diversity, and an indication of the occurrence of other species including predators, was invaluable, and has helped my understanding of what needs to be done and how we might do it. It was also good to see firsthand your/Heritage Expeditions commitment to helping the Preventing Extinctions work, and I’d like to thank you, on behalf of the RSPB, for that contribution and the valuable partnership that has developed with Evgeny/Birds Russia, and Debbie/WWT. There are still relatively few examples of NGO/Commercial organisation partnerships for this kind of work, and your/Heritage’s role should be more widely known and acknowledged. I look forward to continuing cooperation on spoon-billed sandpiper work. ”
