WWRG around the world

As well as catching waders on the Wash, a big part of our work over the years has been providing training to other ringers, both at home and abroad; an important way in which we can help wader conservation. Many group members have travelled around the world to help other ringers catch waders, sharing our knowledge and learning from them. In addition, ringers from all over the UK, as well as from a wide range of other countries, have joined us to learn more about wader catching, using both cannon and mist nets, as well as how to identify, age and sex waders.

The map below shows where WWRG members have travelled to (maroon) to help with projects or to train other ringers and where other ringers have travelled from to train with us (green); where both categories apply, the country is coloured blue.
