The 1st East Asian-Australasian Flyway (EAAF) Shorebird Science Meeting will be held online, hosted by the National Institute of Ecology, Seocheon-gun, Chungcheongnam-do, Republic of Korea (November 3-5, 2020). It is switched from face-to-face to online virtual meeting due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 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 EAAFSSM program will include three days of online plenary lectures, sessions, presentations, and species- or issue-specific workshops. Registered participants are welcome to attend any—or all—of the proceedings, as their interests and availability allow.
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 Australasian Flyway.
