Submit your message of support to migratory waterbirds as they travel across the world to their breeding sites. Be part of our interactive art installation and help inspire awe and appreciation of migratory waterbirds.
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
