Save Light for The Future of Migratory Birds

Aceh has a fairly large coastline, with the eastern part of Aceh bordering Thailand and Malaysia, the Indian Ocean, and Andaman Islands. The strategic location strongly supports the presence of migratory birds internationally along the East Asia-Australasian Flyway (EAAF). From the results of research conducted by Van Mrie & Voous (1988); Crossland (2000); Iqbal et al (2010); Iqbal et al (2013); Putra et al (2019); Iqbal et al (2020), they recorded 42 species of coastal birds that migrated along the east coast of Aceh province.

World Migratory Bird Day

Wildlife Science and Conservation Center is a leading nature conservation and research organization in Mongolia, and we always considered the World Migratory Bird Day as an important annual event for our public engagement and education. We regularly celebrated the WMBD with the support from EAAFP and other partners. In 2022, we are planning to host WMBD events at two bird ringing stations located eastern and eastern Mongolia. These ringing stations are run by WSCC and dedicated to the songbird migration monitoring and public awareness for Mongolia.
