- Migratory Shorebirds Depend on the Yellow Sea
This marvelously photographed video produced by the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology in the USA documents the amazing journeys of migratory shorebirds in the East Asian–Australasian Flyway, focusing on such charismatic species as Spoon-billed Sandpiper, Red Knot and Bar-tailed Godwit, showing their dependence on the food-rich mudflats of the Yellow Sea to be able to undertake their annual migration. EAAFP Partners and collaborators have helped translate the video into Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Russian. We hope that the video can raise awareness of the importance of the Yellow Sea to these birds and help save these critical mudflat habitats to allow the birds to continue these journeys and for people to be able to wonder at the amazing spectacle of shorebird migration for generations to come.
