Internationally Important Waterbird Sites in Manila Bay, Philippines
Wetland values, status and trends
Information about the presence and status of migratory waterbirds and their habitats in Manila Bay, Philippines are lacking.
This study by Arne E. Jensen presents the results of the species, numbers and distribution of migratory waterbirds as well as the status of their wetland habitats of international importance for conservation. Intertidal wetlands, such as those located in Manila Bay provide many ecosystem services but they are not well known in the Philippines. These ecosystems and migratory waterbirds, among other lifeforms, are increasingly under threat from socio-economic activities that result to their poor status.
