Our vision:

The Reddish Egret Working Group seeks to develop, support, and implement range-wide research and management efforts that promote the conservation of Reddish Egret and their habitats through individual and partnership-based initiatives guided by recommendations of the Working Group’s membership.

Upcoming events:

January 23 – 25, 2018


Reddish Egret International Working Group Meeting; South Padre Island, Texas.

The Reddish Egret International Working Group will be meeting January 23-25th, 2018 in South Padre Island, Texas.


November 1 – 2, 2017
Expanding and Enhancing Conservation Efforts of Reddish Egret into Mesoamerica

We will be conducting a Reddish Egret Workshop at the XXI Congress of the SMBC and VI International Conference of PIF. Both meetings will take place Oct 30th – Nov 3rd 2017. San José, Costa Rica. Hotel Crown Plaza.

The Reddish Egret (REEG) Working Group’s overall objective in this workshop is to highlight and potentially elevate the awareness of the Reddish Egret within the bird conservation community, and increase collaboration within Mesoamerica to better understand and support the global population of REEG (see abstract above). This conference is a great opportunity for our working group to broaden membership and be more inclusive of partners in parts of the species’ range that are currently under-represented.
