The People’s Republic of Bangladesh is officially a Partner (the 23rd) of the East Asian – Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP) as from 6 August 2010. It is very significant that the People’s Republic of Bangladesh has joined the Partnership because the country includes many important wetlands for waterbirds of the East Asian – Australasian Flyway and supports populations of threatened species endemic to the Flyway. Bangladesh is especially important as non-breeding habitat for some of our Flyway’s threatened shorebirds, notably Spoon-billed Sandpiper and Nordmann’s Greenshank, and supports large numbers of Lesser Sand Plover. Bangladesh has extensive inland, freshwater habitats for waterbirds as well as intertidal habitats such as around the Ganges-Brahmaputra Delta.
