The Bird Conservation Society of Thailand (BCST)  aims to establish Pak Thale as a sustainable wintering ground for Spoon-billed Sandpiper and other globally threatened shorebirds, as well as an educational site on birds and biodiversity, while improving the livelihood of local people. Now 8 hectares of land was purchased in Pak Thale to ensure the wintersing site of Spoon-billed Sandpiper is secured. The land purchase would not be possible without the support from the Rainforest Trust, Sutthirat Yoowittaya Foundation, Reutrakul family, Kanjanavanit family and every who as donated to support this cause. We would like to sincerely thank everyone again.

BCST is still accepting donations and support from anyone who would like to help conserve the globally threatened shorebirds. Further support will be used to manage the land including landscaping and water management to create suitable habitat, construction of hides and other facilities and surveying of birds and biodiversity in the area. Moreover, it will be used for prevention of coastal erosion which is a serious threat to the whole Pak Thale landscape and has already eroded approximately 3.5 ha (out of 8 ha) of this property. Donations can be made via the following channels.
