The Critical Site Network
This publication aims to provide an overview of the Critical Sites identified for waterbirds in the African-Eurasian region through the Wings Over Wetlands (WOW) project. It highlights the importance of Critical Sites for the populations they hold, the threats facing these sites and their current protection status. Case studies illustrate different approaches to achieving effective conservation for migratory waterbirds.
