With a busy team of interns, the EAAFP Secretariat is at work developing a better set of web resources. The improved website will continue to be a hub of information to find updates and information on all the key species, Working Groups (species expert groups) and Task Forces (conservation activities), the Flyway Site Network – important migratory waterbird sites nominated by EAAFP, as well as the latest news from the EAAFP Secretariat, Partners and about the East Asia-Australasian Flyway in general.
The site has migrated to a WordPress platform. Here it can benefit the Secretariat by providing much more user friendly and easy to update web administration. Partnership and Related News can be easily updated with nifty blogging function. Development of the site is made much less demanding by the WordPress package, allowing for additional functions to be added on using ‘plugins’ without the need for complex coding.
There are already many resources developed on the site, but we will soon be able to go live with multi-language resources on the Partnership and map features to help guide users through the Flyway Site Network and Partners pages.
The new design was created by the talented intern Angela Choi, who worked hard on most of the website development with the assistance of interns Sung-yeon Hwang and David Broughton.
