Greetings from a Birds Korean

Today a friend asked me, “Why do you think conservation is important?” I said it seemed like not too many people around me really think about conservation or the environment, but I felt it to be a simple responsibility loaded with brilliant discovery. We are members of this tremendous biological community that is shared with millions of other species, and at some point I realized I had this responsibility as a participant in this community and I wanted to be active. I’ve always wanted to understand the effects and impacts of human development including my own, and wondered if there was some way I could make it better, so that we can live harmoniously with the wildlife around us. Working with Birds Korea in the ROK gives me the inspiration and direction to do so. I hope you too find inspiration and join us on this great adventure. Welcome to the Birds Korea Blog!  My name is Jason Loghry, and I am a Birds Korean.

Birds Korea Blueprint 2010

The Birds Korea Blueprint 2010 (Birds Korea 2010) is now available in hard copy and online. The 160-page long report provides essential background information on key habitats, species and sites in a large section of the South Korean part of the Yellow Sea, or Yellow Sea Blueprint Region (YSBR). Funding and capacity allowing, Birds Korea will produce a follow-up document in 2012. As proposed, “The Blueprint 2012” will build on background information, contain analysis of some population trends and describe the status of the YSBR’s Important Bird Areas and Ramsar sites. read more
