Secretariat Activity of World Migratory Bird Day, 7 May 2010

To mark the World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD), the EAAFP Secretariat invited eighty students and their parents from Haesong Elementary School in Songdo on 7 May 2010 to the Waterbird Watching & Education Program. Lectures were given by Deputy Director and Science Officer to explain about waterbirds and their flyways as well as the Partnership to kick off the program. After the lectures, we went out to Yongjong Island and Namdong Reservoir and observed the migratory waterbirds. Children and parents were very fascinated by watching waterbirds and their habitats with telescopes and expressed their willingness to participate in these kinds of activities learning with the nature. The EAAFP Secretariat aimed to promote national and local governments to promote these kinds of activities to raise public awareness regarding the importance of the waterbirds and their habitats for WMBD.
