MEET THE ORGANIZERS
Recognizing that no single site or country can protect all the migratory waterbirds along the flyway, international collaboration is vital. That is why, in 2006, a partnership was launched to conserve migratory waterbirds, their habitat and the livelihoods of people who depend on them. This partnership is called the East Asian — Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP).
As of 2020, the EAAFP is made up of 39 Partners and it continues to expand. This is a unique partnership which includes partners in all sectors and it provides a flyway-wide framework to promote dialogue, cooperation and collaboration among a range of stakeholders.

The routes that migratory waterbirds traverse on an annual basis are known as 'flyways'. There are nine major flyways around the world.
The East Asian–Australasian Flyway (EAAF) is one of the largest flyways in the world and it stretches from the Russian Far East and Alaska, southwards through East and Southeast Asia, to Australia and New Zealand. The EAAF encompasses 22 countries, and is home to over 50 million migratory waterbirds of more than 210 species.
