The latest WeBS Alerts report is available on-line, including a new interactive interface. This on-line information source details trends in waterbird numbers on protected areas over different time periods. In doing so, species that have undergone major declines in numbers are identified, and flagged by the issuing of an “Alert”. Alerts are advisory, and are issued with the intention of promoting focused research to determine what pressures may be driving the underlying changes in numbers, leading to appropriate action where such is warranted.
