China to scale back reclamation projects in the Yellow Sea
January 18, 2018
The Chinese government has announced that it will halt all ‘business-related’ land reclamation along its coast. This is a huge step forward for the conservation of migratory shorebirds (and other species) in the EAAF. Further details can be found on The People's Republic of China State Council website and the Xinhua News. See also Birding Beijing for a discussion about the implications of the proposed changes.
The VWSG is buoyed by this fabulous news. We would once again like to thank all the people in the Flyway who have tirelessly campaigned for changes to China's policy on coastal land reclamation.
