WLI Asia members met in a large group in December 2019. The 7th WLI Asia Conference brought together just under 100 WLI Asia members and local wetland conservation staff and volunteers.
WLI member Guandu Nature Park hosted the meeting as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations. The other joint-hosts were Taipei Zoo and the municipality.
During the five day conference, we visited all three places, heard inspiring stories from WLI members across Asia and discussed plans for the coming two years across Asia. These will include exchange visits, a travelling exhibition and an online resource platform.
The travelling exhibitions initiative will mean WLI Asia members delivering their exhibition materials to other members for their wetland centres to use. WLI Asia members will gain more digital resource sharing, and a mechanism for exchange visits. For more details, read the summary report.
