Welcome to the International Wader Study Group
The International Wader Study Group is an organisation of enthusiastic professionals and amateurs researching waders, also called shorebirds. The involvement of the members of the IWSG in wader research ranges from observing waders in ones own ‘backyard’ to extensive, long-term studies aiming at a deeper understanding of spectacular wader phenomena like long-distance migration, living in extreme environments and variable reproductive strategies.

We are in the process of moving to a new and improved website. During this transition period you will still have access to the same content, including journal access. However, we have disabled online payments and editing of your contact details while we transfer data to the new site. If you have urgent problems regarding membership please contact the Membership Secretary. We thank you for your patience during this changeover period.
