New EAAFP key species factsheet

The EAAFP Secretariat has recently produced a set of factsheet for eight key species of East Asian – Australasian Flyway. It is one of the actions from the EAAFP CEPA strategy and Action Plan 2019-2024 to work with the EAAFP Working Groups and Task Forces to develop species profile and to work on developing CEPA materials. Thanks to the support of the Working group and Task Forces, and sponsors from our Partner Hanns Seidel Foundation and the Hwaseong City Government, EAAFP has published new factsheets of 8 key species in EAA Flyway: Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Baer’s Pochard, Scaly-sided Merganser, Black-faced Spoonbill, Far Eastern Curlew, Saunders’s Gull, Dalmatian Pelican and Bar-tailed Godwit.

The factsheet aimed for the general public and the school students and educators. It has been putting efforts to raise awareness of the importance of the migratory waterbird species, so that people will understand the need to protect them and would participate in conservation activities. Each factsheet includes Common name and scientific name of the species, the current IUCN status, Identification of features, distribution map, habitats, threats, and population of the species. For those species that has sexual dimorphism in females and males such as Baer’s Pochard and Scaly-sided Merganser, or two different plumage during breeding and non-breeding season, were also indicated. In the future, revised website for the key species will be launched for more detailed species profile.
