Colombia is an important stopover and stopover site on the migration routes of Nearctic shorebirds. Populations of more than twenty species reside temporarily in the country and at least three species of neotropical distribution concentrate their distribution in Colombia. The seas, coasts, estuaries and indoor wetlands provide habitats for nearctic and neotropical species to the long and wide of the national territory. They are various threats that affect these habitats in the country and the rest of its distribution area, and those related to the destruction and degradation of their habitats revist greater concern.
The Conservation Plan for Aves Playeras in Colombia provides a diagnosis of the population and priority species, provides a list of important sites at the national and international level, in addition to the threats to which they face. Finally, it presents a possible action plan to achieve conservation for shorebirds, as well as the actors that must be involved for the plan to succeed.
