Chris Rostron, WLI Global and colleagues from WWT visited South Korea with the East Asia Australasia Flyway Partnership from 16-22 June 2022 to advise on wetlands at Hwaseong, including opportunities for a new wetland centre. The team also visited Gochang Wetland Centre, a WLI member, see photo above with the centre manager Mr Jung and Ms Jang. The centre had some great educational tools, an education/meeting space and impressive top floor viewing tower.
On our return to Incheon, we also visited the black-faced spoonbill friends and the new visitor centre. We hope to work with them on the Birds and Schools initiative in the East Asia Australasia Flwway. It was a great trip and we hope to continue work, particularly with the second stage of the World Heritage bid for 'getbol' or tidal mudflats.
