Bird migration entails tens of billions of wild birds migrating annually from their breeding areas towards their wintering grounds, across the temperate and tropical belts of Asia. The three migratory flyways of the old continent are namely the East Asian, Central Asian and African-Eurasian flyways. Of these, the East Asian-Australasian Flyway (which passes through Singapore) is the largest, and is perhaps used by more species than other flyways. In this webinar, Dr Yong Ding Li explores in detail these three Asian flyways. He will share the unique biogeographic characteristics of each of them, and reveal the best places to see these grand spectacles of nature. Join Ding Li as he surveys what we know about migratory birds in the Asian continent, and the conservation actions needed to better protect them.
