The Asian Flyways Initiative

Bird and nature lovers from all over the world flock to Asian wetlands to appreciate migratory bird species such as curlews, knots, sandpipers and ducks through activities such as bird watching. Millions of birds travel distances as great as 13,000km from the Arctic to wintering grounds as far south as New Zealand, and they require ‘stepping-stone’ sites to rest and feed along on the way. Flyways are systems of global importance for the conservation of bird species and their habitats.
