On 11 November 2012, the Government of Malaysia became the 28th Partner of EAAFP. All Partners warmly welcomed Malaysia to the Partnership. Malaysia is a very important country along the Flyway for migratory waterbirds and has made significant progress in assuring their continued conservation. Malaysia is in the process of nominating Bako Buntal Bay as its Network site of the Flyway Site Network under EAAFP and is looking forward to work together with Partners to conserve migratory birds and their habitats in the countries of the Flyway.
EAAFP Partners now comprise 15 countries, 3 intergovernmental agencies, 9 international non-government organisations and 1 international private sector organization.
