The Migratory Birds
Artificial Feather, Tree Trunk, Sand, Water, Audio
Hong Kong lies at the heart of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway, which extends 13,000 km from the Arctic Circle through East and Southeast Asia to Australia and New Zealand. Each year these birds fly between their breeding and wintering grounds, and rely on a network of wetland way stations to rest and feed before embarking on the next leg of their journey. Unfortunately, the population of waterbirds in the EAAF is in rapid decline due to loss of wetland habitats to development, pollution and hunting. Without an regular habitat, where will these migratory birds go in the future?
