Countless generations of curlew sandpipers have relied on staging grounds around the Yellow Sea to refuel as they make their annual migrations along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway. However, callous destruction of these crucial wetlands is occurring on a huge scale, putting curlew sandpipers and many other species at risk.
