Through interviews and incredible footage, Saving a Flyway shows how an enlightened understanding of the value of coastal wetlands in the Yellow Sea—combined with collaboration among academics, NGOs, local communities, and governments—has turned what scientists feared would be an “epicenter of extinction” into a story of hope for millions of migratory shorebirds along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway.
Our esteemed panel provided their unique perspectives on the significance of this example and how it can inspire others around the world as countries prepare to forge a new international framework to slow and halt biodiversity loss at the UN Conference on Biological Diversity in Kunming, China, in October.
