Program: Migratory Shorebirds

The Geum Estuary Project

The Geum Estuary Project is a collaboration led by BirdLife International and BirdLife Australia. This project aspires to demonstrate alternative and sustainable paths for developing coastal wetlands in the Republic of Korea.

The East Asian–Australasian Flyway is one of the world’s nine major flyways for migrating birds. It is, by far, the most threatened.
