Join the International Wader Study Group and become part of the network of wader enthusiasts around the world.

Get our journal Wader Study delivered direct to your doorstep, three times a year. It’s packed with the latest research and news from the wader world.

What’s more, as a paid-up member of IWSG you can attend our lively and informative annual conference at a reduced rate.

Membership of the International Wader Study Group runs on a calendar year basis. Standard rates are £30/€36 and we have special family rates (£45/€54) and institution packages (£70/€84). We also offer a reduced rate—two years for the price of one—for members in low-income countries thanks to generous donations from our supporters. Please contact the Treasurer David Turner to find out if you are eligible.

Pay online

The best way to join the IWSG is to pay online by credit or debit card using our secure payment.
