Working for Waders - The Delivering Results-led Collaborative Action Group

Two workshops, held earlier in 2017, (the overview report is available here) highlighted that there was wide consensus on the need to halt and, where possible, reverse declines in waders. 
The Working for Waders Initiative was established to bring people together to encourage new ways of thinking and working, especially through the development of collaborative activities and actions on the ground. 
It was agreed that urgent action is required to save the curlew, the lapwing, the golden plover and the other waders whose numbers are dropping, and that action needs to be taken now. 
The following three Action Groups have been established:
  • Delivering results-led collaborative action on the ground;
  • Collating data and identifying hot spots and zones for waders; and
  • Raising awareness of the plight of waders and developing and sharing best practice to reverse these declines.
Briefs have been drawn up for each of these Action Groups, giving some outline details on the purpose of each group. Briefs for these groups are available here. These briefs have been developed from the ideas raised during the stakeholder workshops held earlier this year. Please help to put these into practice. 
Earlier this week Scottish Land & Estates attended the first meeting of the Delivering results-led collaborative action on the ground group. The meeting focused on defining the objectives of what this group would deliver and discussed what action is currently been taken and what future action is needed.
