Overseas NGOs and JAWAN
We also place importance on links among wetlands of the Pacific Rim, and particularly with Korea and other East Asian countries.
We continue to maintain particularly close relations with a citizens’ group in San Francisco that sent a speaker to JAWAN’s International Wetland Symposium in 1992. We have learned a great deal from the movement to protect and restore San Francisco Bay.
JAWAN works with Korean groups in surveying tidal flats and migratory birds, and in the movement to save Saemangeum wetland. We hope to continue and strengthen our ties with Korean wetland protection movements in future.
