The Waterbird Population Estimates (WPE) online database provides current and historic estimates, trends and 1% thresholds for over 800 waterbird species and 2300 biogeographic populations worldwide. This project has been developed by Wetlands International with the support of Environment Canada and the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.
Wetlands International Project looked into the problems with erosion in Tanjung Piai which was designated as a Ramsar site in 2003. The coastal mangroves are an important landmark of Malaysia: the most southern tip of the Asian Continent.
The wetlands of Sedili are among the best remaining examples of wetlands in the country with distinct gradation of riverine vegetation and freshwater swamp forests and rich of wildlife. It is a very attractive area for tourists and hence where sustainable ecotourism can strongly contribute to local livelihoods.
In Sedili Kecil, Johor, Malaysia, we aim to raise awareness on the importance of the conservation of mangrove forests among local communities. We also encourage their involvement in rehabilitating mangroves and strengthening their capacity to implement techniques for sustainable use and monitor the mangroves.
The rarely visited country of Brunei Darussalam is a green gem on the rapidly deforesting island of Borneo.
