To our Partners and Supporters,

One of the significant items in the June newsletter was the formal launch of the China Coastal Wetland Conservation Network in Fuzhou, Fujian province. I am happy to report that the “Fuzhou Declaration” has now been translated into English and can be found at the Paulson Institute website.

We all look forward to the next steps in implementing this important initiative, which can bring together different groups working for coastal waterbird and habitat management in China.

While the Yellow Sea has received a great deal of attention in light of its significance as a staging area, particularly inter-tidal areas, for migratory shorebirds and other groups, south-east Asia has received rather less attention, even though its coastal wetlands are also very important as staging and non-breeding habitats for many shorebirds and other species, such as Chinese Egret. The proposal to create a South East Asia network at MOP8 in Japan is very welcome, and has been discussed since at least MOP6 in Indonesia. The recent meeting of the ASEAN Working Group on Nature Conservation and Biodiversity in Thailand, where I was able to make a presentation, thanks to the kind invitation of our Partner, the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity, will hopefully accelerate the consolidation of this network and future activities.

Spike Millington, Chief Executive
