Flyway Site Network

Read in other languages:

.
The Flyway Site Network refers to the network of important sites – wetlands – used by migratory waterbirds throughout the Flyway.

The East Asian-Australasian Flyway (the Flyway) is one of nine major migratory waterbird flyways around the globe and is home to over 50 million migratory waterbirds – including shorebirds, Anatidae (ducks, geese and swans), cranes, and seabirds (for example divers, cormorants, gulls, shearwaters, and auks) – from over 250 different populations.

There are currently 900 sites recognised as internationally important to migratory waterbirds along the flyway.

For more information on each site, click the map location (not available on mobile site).
