Why is the Oystercatcher population declining ? And can we turn this tide? What are the cumulative effects of human activities in the breeding and wintering areas? The Cumulative Human Impact on biRd Populations (CHIRP) study investigated these questions.

CHIRP will be closed at the beginning of 2022. In the Symposium Oystercatcher we look back at the results of the research and what these mean for the protection of the Oystercatcher. The symposium is organized by Sovon Vogelonderzoek and Vogelbescherming Nederland, with cooperation of the other organizations involved in CHIRP.
