Reducing the Wildlife Trade


For the past several years, The Wildlife Friends Foundation of Thailand has been taking initiatives to preserve wildlife in the South East region of Asia. Over the Songkran break Adam Spicer and I attempted to document this process by interviewing Director and Founder of WFFT — Edwin Wiek. We're fortunate to have had this opportunity and feel free to watch our documentary on Youtube.

Thailand's Migratory Shorebirds


Shorebirds are a diverse and vibrant group of birds that live along shorelines and intertidal areas. They migrate thousands of kilometers between their nesting and wintering grounds on an annual basis. Thailand is home to a few of the most essential shorebird wintering and staging areas in the East Asian-Australasian flyway, hosting a plethora of endemic and migratory shorebirds, including globally threatened species.

This record of the birds' lives reveals the intricacies and magnificence of shorebirds hidden behind their seemingly mundane appearance and explores the multitude of threats that shorebirds face in Thailand.
