The Geum Estuary Project

The Geum Estuary Project is a collaborative project led by BirdLife International and BirdLife Australia. This multi-faceted project aspires to demonstrate alternative and sustainable paths for developing coastal wetlands in the Repbulic of Korea. The project aims to support conservation initiatives within the Estuary for the protection of migratory shorebirds and their habitat, including habitat restoration, systematic monitoring and the possibility of the Estuary being listed as a World Heritage Site. The project also aims to explore and implement opportunities for the Estuary to become a world-class eco-tourism attraction. Central to each of the project’s objectives is the importance of sharing information, skills and expertise.
