068 Migratory Birds and the Salt Pans project in Taiwan with Scott Pursner

World Migratory Bird Day 2022


Celebrating World Migratory Bird Day (WorldMigratoryBirdDay.org) and this episode we talk to Scott Pursner from the Taiwan Wild Bird Federation about the birds that move thorough Taiwan, that reside in Taiwan and the reclaimation project to maintain some disused salt pans, that had become important habitat for some rare bird species.

Scott talks about the variation of the habitats that are present on Taiwain, the co-operation of the different conservation groups, citizen science and the awareness of birds by the people of Taiwan.  Scott talks about the efforts to preserve disused salt pans that had become important habitat for shorebirds when the industry had ceased.
