We are looking for cooperation!

By working together and utilizing distinct expertise, novel ideas may rapidly emerge that would have otherwise not become apparent by individuals or small groups. Furthermore, to efficiently problem-solve, collaborative projects can strive to be more ambitious due more areas of expertise and better coverage of fieldwork efforts. This way, collaborative science can contribute to a research question without as much time or financial burden by any single individual. For example, it is much easier to contribute on issues that are central to one’s skills/expertise than to build new expertise. Simultaneous knowledge gain for each contributor can be rapid because they learn from each other’s contributions on a shared problem. Finally, there are many ways to contribute productively on large-scale projects, such as data coding, data collection in the field, analysis, writing, conceptualization, design, coordination, etc. In such projects, all contributions are essential and valued, meaning that many areas and levels of expertise can contribute productively together: from senior expert to citizen scientist. Together we can achieve big things in shorebirds science and conservation.

We look forward working with shorebird enthusiasts from all over the world. This may include scientists, conservationists, PostDocs, PhD students, MSc students, interns and volunteers. Do get in touch with us.

Join us on this exciting journey!
