Follow the journey of a semipalmated sandpiper

Imagine travelling over 3,000 kilometres without any stops, any fuel, any luggage or any engine.
Our partners at Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network have created a terrific story map depicting the journey that migratory shorebirds take from the Canadian Arctic, through Johnson's Mills, to South America.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada is privileged to be a custodian of some of our country’s most vital natural resources. By protecting these precious places, like the critical stopover and feeding ground for migratory birds at Johnson’s Mills Shorebird Reserve and Interpretive Centre in New Brunswick, future generations can, too, enjoy and experience Canada’s natural legacy.
You can help semipalmated sandpipers, like T971, by contributing to conservation efforts at Johnson’s Mills Shorebird Reserve and Interpretive Centre.
