The 1st East Asian-Australasian Flyway (EAAF) Shorebird Science Meeting will be held at the National Institute of Ecology, Seocheon-gun, Chungcheongnam-do, Republic of Korea (November 3-6, 2020). This meeting will support international efforts to study, monitor, and conserve migratory shorebirds.
Shorebird biologists, wetland ecologists, researchers, practitioners, students, land managers and other professionals working on shorebird conservation from across the EAA are invited to participate in this meeting, allowing interchange and collaboration among shorebird scientists and conservationists across the flyway.
The scientific program will include three days of plenary lectures, symposia sessions, oral and poster presentations, species- or issue-specific workshops and side meetings. The final day will include a bird-watching field trip to the Geum Estuary intertidal area where thousands of migratory shorebirds will be staging.
Our goals are
- to promote research that provides an evidence base for monitoring, management, conservation and education/outreach relevant to shorebirds in East Asia and Australasia.
- to provide a structured forum to facilitate, coordinate, and enhance the exchange of shorebird information among interested parties.
- to promote the conservation of shorebirds in the East Asia and Australasia.
