HKBWS is now officially the 38th member of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP)

The Hong Kong Bird Watching Society is now officially the 38th member of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP), further expanding the cross-regional conservation work.

HKBWS has been working closely with different conservation groups in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway, such as being the coordinator of the Black-faced Spoonbill Working Group and the Seabird Working Group.

The East Asian-Australasian Flyway covers a wide range of countries and regions, from the Arctic to Asia, Australia and New Zealand, with a total length of 13,000 kilometers. Its integrity is vital to the 50 million migratory birds in this flyway. The Deep Bay in Hong Kong is located in the center of the flyway. It acts as a supply station for migratory birds to rest and forage. Therefore, Hong Kong plays an indispensable role in this flyway.

EAAFP is the largest bird conservation network in Asia, and its members include different conservation groups, government and scholars. HKBWS hopes to strengthen cooperation with them through EAAFP and protect more migratory birds in the flyway.
