EAAFP currently sponsors activities across the Flyway. These campaigns have been developed to both raise awareness and bring people and countries together. By bringing attention to migratory waterbirds and their habitats, we can help to ensure their continued safety and prosperity. These campaigns are directed at all levels, especially local communities, schools, and individuals.
Everyone is welcome to join!
Year of the Knots
Red Knots and Great Knots are small, stocky wading birds. They use large, muddy estuaries around the coast for feeding. The population of both species has been declining at a rate of 2-2.5 % per year in recent decades, primarily as a result of habitat loss at the stopover sites.
The East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP) Secretariat is proposing the “Year of the Knots” to call for attention and urgent conservation actions to save these birds.
To Our Winged Travellers
‘To Our Winged Travellers‘ is an interactive art project to celebrate the annual migration of migratory waterbirds. Since last May, over 1000 people participated in the project via online and at the local bird events in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway (EAAF).
The project started in the Republic of Korea and messages were delivered to other countries in the EAAF, such as Australia, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia. Please help us keep the greetings coming and ‘flying’ out to their next destination!.
Flyway Youth Forum 2020
On 28-29 November and 5-6 December 2020, the Flyway Youth Forum is the first ever international youth event organised by the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership and Youth Engaged in Wetlands that aims to connect youth leaders, scientists, activists, artists, and conservationists in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway through a series of intensive virtual workshops, platform exchanges, and networking activities.
This online event is developed for young people between the ages of 18 and 30 years old to explore youth engagement in the conservation of wetlands and migratory waterbirds along the East-Asian Australasian Flyway!
