Colour Flagging Protocol for Migratory Shorebirds in the East Asian–Australasian Flyway

It is recognised that there is a need to coordinate all colour marking activities for migratory birds throughout the flyway. In this protocol we have attempted to deal only with colour flagging of migratory shorebirds. If the principles embodied here are accepted by all bird banding schemes and researchers, it would then be appropriate to also attempt international coordination of colour banding in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway.

Asia-Pacific Migratory Waterbird Conservation Strategy: 2001-2005

The cyclical migration of waterbirds across the globe has been long recognised as a natural wonder. Annually millions of waterbirds fly many thousands of kilometres across a vast range of climates and habitats in response to the urge to nest and to avoid adverse weather conditions. These flights require them to replenish their reserves along the way. This cyclic pattern has occurred for aeons and predates the evolution of mankind.

Overall, 1862 wetlands were covered in 30 countries including Australia and New Zealand during the 1991-92 northern winter. Counts were usually carried out in January but sometimes encompassed December/February. In exceptional cases where a strong justification existed, counts were carried out upto early March (Bangladesh) or in November (New Zealand. Over 850 participants were involved in the AWX; over 11.6 million waterbirds were counted, belonging to 282 species.

Asian Waterfowl Census 1990

The Asian Waterfowl Census was established in 1987 as a consequence of alarming reports on the destruction and degradation of wetlands in Asia, and the subsequent reported decline of waterfowl populations. Its objectives were therefore set as follows: to obtain information on waterfowl populations at wetlands in Asia in mid-winter, as a basis for evaluation of sites and monitoring of populations; to encourage a grater interest in wetlands and waterfowl amongst governmental, non-governmental and private individuals, and thereby promote the conservation of wetlands in Asia.

Asia Waterfowl Census 1989

In 1989, counts were sumitted by over 500 participants from 20 countries at 1,319 wetlands - the third year running that these records have been broken. This phenomenon growth reflects the recent explosion of interest in wetland conservation across Asia.

 The census helps demonstrate that wetlands are not wastelands, but that they should be protected from drainage, pollution and other degradation. The future conservation of wetlands in Asia lies in showing that wetlands are valuable.

Asia Waterfowl 1987

The report informs you how many birds were counted in the different countries. A total of nearly two million birds is a good result for the first year. However, the total population of these birds in all the wetlands is in reality much higher. The numbers of herons and storks give good impression, and it is good that some of the rare species have been observed. For some species, like the pelicans, the numbers are close to the total numbers as they only occur in the most important wetlands and they are nearly all covered.
