Bonn, 6 March 2019 – The World Migratory Bird Day Coordination Team  was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Dr Lew Young, the Chief Executive of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP).  Lew, who was 60 years old, died yesterday of a heart attack while attending a meeting in Beijing. 

Lew was a passionate conservationist and a good ally to both CMS and AEWA and he was a strong advocate of the EAAFP participating fully in the World Migratory Bird Day campaign.  He will be sorely missed.
