Thailand has been a Partner since 2010. It now has 3 Flyway Network Sites, the most recent designation being  2015, January. Among the many species, including the Key Species of the EAAFP supported by Thai wetlands, the region has been greatly appreciated for its numerous sightings of non-breeding Spoon-billed Sandpipers, a critically endangered shorebird that lives in the EAAF.
