Expert Group Meeting on Conservation and Rehabilitation of Habitats for Key Migratory Birds in North-East Asia

Date & Location : 

10-11 October 2013, Incheon, Republic of Korea

 

NEASPEC organized an inception meeting for a new project, "Conservation and Rehabilitation of Habitats for Key Migratory Birds in North-East Asia," which directly supports the Nature Conservation Strategy, adopted by the 12th Senior Officials Meeting in 2007. The Strategy identified the flagship species of North-East Asia, including three species of feline animals (Amur Tiger, Amur Leopard, and Snow Leopard) and three species of migratory birds, namely, White-naped Cranes, Hooded Cranes and Black-faced Spoonbills. After several years of developing and highlighting the importance of follow-up activities on the migratory birds species, this meeting brought together national experts and other stakeholders to review subregional and national challenges related to the conservation of the migratory bird species and their habitats. It also aimed to develop an implementation plan for the project components including joint survey and study, capacity building on habitat management, strategy for habitat conservation and rehabilitation, and awareness raising on habitat conservation.
