Asia supports over 400 species of waterbirds, including some of the most distinctive ones. The wetlands of Cambodia and Myanmar host the Sarus Crane, the world’s tallest bird. Likewise, the swamps of Malaysia and Indonesia are home to the most threatened of the stork species, the Storm’s Stork. Waterbirds are indicators of the state of wetland ecosystems. They are regularly monitored under many initiatives, the best known being the Asian Waterbird Census. The new ‘Field Guide to the Waterbirds of ASEAN’ was produced by a team from Seoul National University and country experts from ASEAN, to fill the gaps in resources for waterbird research and monitoring. Wonderfully illustrated by Takashi Taniguchi, this book will help build capacity in this area. In this talk, contributing author for Singapore Dr Yong Ding Li will share about the importance of conserving waterbirds and launch the field guide in conjunction with World Migratory Bird Day. 


Join him at 7.30 pm at the NSS Office.
