Coastal Wetlands are among the most threatened sites in the world. This year, thousands of birds will end up stranded in the middle of migration, with nowhere to eat or rest on their long journeys. Exhausted and starving, many of them will sadly die. The last thing they see is often a concrete wasteland where their favourite wetland habitat used to be. But it doesn’t have to be this way. 

Help us to protect the Jambelí Strait of Ecuador, and other coastal wetlands used by migratory birds around the world by donating to this appeal.

We know what we need to do, will you help us?

Thanks to our generous match donors, we were able to double the first £17,000 of donations - thank you.
