Migratory waterbirds in East Asian-Australasian Flyway and how birdwatchers in Borneo can contribute to the conservation.
by : Ms Tomoko Ichikawa of EAAFP
East Asian-Australasian Flyway (EAAF) stretches from Alaska and Russia, through East and Southeast Asia, to Australia and New Zealand. It includes 22 countries with various economic, cultural, and social backgrounds. The EAAF supports at least 50 million migratory waterbirds of more than 200 species. However, the number of migratory waterbirds is in a sharp decline because of the rapid loss and degradation of their habitats. Continuous monitoring will become very important to support the survival of migratory waterbirds. It would be great if this talk can encourage Bornean bird watchers to discuss how they can participate in the systematic and continuous monitoring in Borneo through their works and hobbies to contribute to the migratory waterbird conservation.
