The online database makes it easy to obtain information on the status of waterbird species, providing a comprehensive basis for management and decision making. All previous editions of the WPE series are included, and the latest Conservation Status Reports for the African-Eurasian Waterbird Agreement.
The successful assimilation of the enormous body of information used in this series requires the cooperation of our Waterbird Specialist Groups and other key contacts throughout the world. We would like to thank all contributors very much and to stress how much of a privilege it is to work, and to be associated, with such a group of experts.
We have received support from the following organisations for various editions of the Waterbird Population Estimates:
