Waders in the Philippines: A world-wide quest continues
MetadataShow full item record
Half a million migratory birds including 64 globally-threatened species travel through the Philippines every year from late September up to early April, most of them coming from as far as north of China, Russia, and the arctic. Many of them are shorebirds and waders visiting the Philippine islands alongside human visitors who enjoy beautiful beaches and coasts lined with colorful coral reefs. The Haribon Foundation, a Bird¬Life Philippines partner and IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) member, has continued the cause to study and protect these feathered tourists.
