Thanks to active participation, over 500 messages were collected for the last two months via online and from the collection point. Each message note was connected by a fishing line and then was hung in a shape of the flock of flying birds, with the help of Incheon Free Economic Zone (IFEZ). You can find how EAAFP staff reached five metre high HERE.
We are looking forward to a perfect place to display those messages gathered from all over the world. Please kindly contact us by email at email@example.com if you, your organisation, or your visitor centre has a place to display and encourage more people to join this campaign. Read more
#WelcomeWaterbirds - across the EAA Flyway
As the Southern parts of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway bid their annual farewell to long distance travellers, inspired by ‘Farewell Shorebirds‘, we take this opportunity to welcome migratory waterbirds to their stop-overs and destinations on their migration to breeding grounds. Wherever you are in EAAF, join us in bidding farewell or welcome to our migratory waterbirds to wish for their safe journey and successful breeding. Everyone is encouraged to spread this welcome message and express your joy at the wonder of migration in whatever way you can, details on sharing your activities and well wishes can be found at #WelcomeWaterbirds
