In late May, representatives from BirdLife Australia and BirdLife International hosted Indigenous Yawuru and Murujuga Rangers from Broome and Karratha, academics from Deakin University and representatives of the East Asian–Australasian Flyway Partnership and Woodside Energy, in a visit to South Korea. While there, they witnessed first-hand, the conservation work being conducted to preserve the intertidal mudflats of the Geum Estuary as well as the destruction of muddy shorelines.
The aim of the visit was to complement research and share advice with Seocheon County and the South Korean government on shorebird management in the Geum Estuary, the most important site in South Korea, which supports 90,000 migrating shorebirds, including many displaced from reclaimed areas.
