Arctic Migratory Birds Initiative: East Asian-Australasian Flyway Workshop to be held in Singapore on side of EAAFP MOP9

Ding Li Yong, AMBI-EAAF coordinator

In collaboration with Singapore’s National Parks Board  and Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and with the support of the Royal Norwegian Embassy (Singapore), EAAFP Partner, the Conservation of Arctic Flora and Fauna (CAFF) will organize the Arctic Migratory Birds Initiative (AMBI)-East Asian-Australasian Flyway Workshop from 7-9 January 2017.

The AMBI-EAAF workshop will focus on habitat conservation and the harvest of migratory shorebirds in countries along the Flyway. The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, arguably Singapore’s most important site for the very shorebirds targeted by the workshop, will set the scene for two days of presentations, meetings and discussions. In recognition that actions outside of the Arctic are required to save Arctic-breeding species, this workshop will be the first CAFF event to be held in Southeast Asia. The workshop will bring together participants and speakers from as far away as Kamchatka and Alaska, as well as neighbouring Indonesia and Myanmar. The workshop aims at helping realign AMBI goals and actions targeted at conserving the region’s most imperilled waterbird species, and secure the cooperation of both government and non-government stakeholders across the EAAF.

If you are interested in attending the workshop, please contact the AMBI-EAAF coordinator (Ding Li Yong: for more information.
