In memory of Andres Kuresoo, our colleague and supporter
We deeply regret to announce that our dear friend and colleague, Andres Kuresoo passed away at his home on 2nd September. Andres was a pivotal figure in waterbird and wetland conservation. He was the Estonian national coordinator of the International Waterbird Census for many years and also a Member Delegate of his country to Wetlands International.
As a researcher at the Estonian University of Life Sciences in Tartu, Andres had a strong interest in waterbirds and his scientific results and field experience were fundamental in developing national and international action plans for a number of threatened species such as the Great Snipe, the Steller’s Eider, the Bewick’s Swan and most recently the Long-tailed Duck. It was always a great pleasure working with him and we will miss him greatly.
