October 10th this year was the second World Migratory Bird Day of 2020 and under the banner of Birds Connect Our World, the TWBF participated in a celebration event hosted by Environment for the Americas. We created this special video introducing the citizen science projects for birds here in Taiwan, specifically the BBS Taiwan, MAPS Taiwan, the Taiwan NYBC, and eBird Taiwan. Enjoy!
中華鳥會很榮幸受邀參加由美國的環境組織 Environment for the Americas(EFTA) 主辦的2020年世界候鳥日活動，今年度的主題是 Birds connect our world ! 為了讓其他國家的朋友多認識台灣的候鳥現況，本會國際事務部主任Scott Pursner與EFTA執行長Susan Bonfield進行了視訊訪談，其中我們也錄製了一段影片，介紹台灣在東亞澳候鳥遷徙線上的重要性。
Have you heard of the Pheasant-tailed Jacana Conservation Park? Managed by CWBF partner group the Wild Bird Society of Tainan, it's responsible for bringing the local population of jacanas from less than 50 in the 1990s to over 1000 now. Through a mixture of community engagement, education and outreach, and working with the government to promote green certifications and water chestnut cultivation, this documentary looks at just how they did it.
