The Taiwan Wild Bird Federation and the Taiwan Endemic Species Research Institute officially announce the publication of the State of Taiwan's Birds 2020. Government, academia, and civil society came together to create this first-of-its-kind report, an important milestone in Taiwan's bird conservation work. It is the first comprehensive assessment of the conservation status of Taiwan's birds, integrating data collected through long-term citizen science projects and scientific studies. It also provides in-depth analysis of overall species population trends, the status of specific bird groups, current threats, and conservation strategies and actions.
It is with great sadness that the Chinese Wild Bird Federation must announce its removal from the BirdLife International partnership. Though a proud, faithful, and strong member of the partnership since 1996, the CWBF was told in December 2019 that it now posed a risk to BirdLife International due to its Chinese name (中華民國野鳥學會).
