Philippines, a group of islands north of Indonesia and east of the Southeast Asian mainland, has been a Parnter since 2006 (MoP1). It now has 4 Flyway Network Sites, the most recent designation being 2017, January. The abundant coastal habitat is valuable for the transit of shorebirds and waders during migration. Offshore habitats, such as the Tubbataha Reefs, provide nesting sites for migratory seabird populations in the flyway. Philippines supports as breeding and wintering sites for Key Species of the EAAFP such as Common Redshank, Great Knot, Bar-tailed Godwit, Asian Dowitcher, Eurasian Curlew, Far Eastern Curlew, Chinese Egret, and many other shorebirds.
