Guidelines for the preparation of site nominating documentation for the East Asian-Australasian shorebird site network

Environment Australia and Wetlands International - Oceania, 2002


  1. The East Asian-Australasian Shorebird Site Network
  2. Procedure for listing sites
  3. Explanatory Notes and Guidelines for the Information Sheet on Shorebird Network Sites
  4. Minimum Population Estimates and 1% Criteria for the shorebird populations in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway

The East Asian - Australasian Shorebird Site Network is a network of both sites and people supported by governments and non-government organisations. Wetlands, which support 20,000 or more shorebirds or 1% of the flyway population of a migratory shorebird species or subspecies, are eligible to join the Shorebird Site Network. Managers of sites are encouraged under the Asia-Pacific Migratory Waterbird Conservation Strategy 2001-2005 and the Shorebird Action Plan; to establish a local advisory or liaison group and develop management plans. Such activities help to gain support for the effective management of these sites for shorebird conservation.
