The Shorebird Journal is a collection of artists’ works living close to or within the areas of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN). This journal has made it from Canada to Patagonia and it is handed on among the members of the network.

The intention of the Shorebird Journal is to show the richness and shorebirds diversity, in addition, to educate, strengthen friendly bonds and cooperation among countries.

On March of 2018, the shorebird journal was here in Bahía de Todos Santos. The artists  Esther Gámez and Louise Aceves had the chance to contribute with highly creative works.

Esther Gámez included the drawings of the mural entitled “Vuelo” made as part of the activities of awareness raising within the festivities of the 2nd Bahia de Todos Santos Bird Festival, where the following bird species are portrayed: red knot (Calidris canutus roselaari) an endangered species, and sanderling (Calidris alba). Louise participated with an illustration of the black-necked stilt (Himantopus mexicanus). The journal will keep its path  by traveling to Ecuador and then to other countries. We can’t wait to see the final result.
