Participants from various countries visited the Negros Occidental Coastal Wetlands Conservation Area (NOCWCA) – the seventh Ramsar site of the Philippines located in southern Negros – as part of the 2nd East Asian-Australasian Flyway (EAAF) Congress on Research and Development for Wetlands and Migratory Waterbirds.
