Thursday, February 18, 7pm ~ Roy Lowe will present "The Precipitous Loss of China's Coastal Wetlands and Impacts to Birds in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway." As a result of the economic growth in China large areas of coastal wetlands are being filled and converted for development purposes. Loss of mudflat habitat is impacting migratory shorebirds and other birds that depend on these wetlands. As a member of Global Parks, Roy traveled to Hong Kong three time this past summer/fall to assist in providing training to Chinese coastal wetlands managers. Roy will discuss the current coastal wetland situation in China and his presentation will include numerous photos of Asian birds. This Yaquina Birders & Naturalists meeting starts at 7 PM at the Public Meeting Room of Central Lincoln PUD (2129 North Coast Highway) in north Newport. Cost: free. Everyone is welcome! For more info, call 541-265-2965.
