Hi again,

Invisible Connections is a really superior publication, and was put together in two languages (one being English, the other is I think Korean) just prior to the Ramsar conference in South Korea a couple of years ago. As I understand it, every Ramsar delegate was gifted a copy. The book is filled with superlative photos, along with very accessible text, making it suitable as a gift for anyone who knows nothing about shorebirds, as well as for those who know plenty. Many on this list will know that Danny Rogers, as well as being a top class and dedicated scientist, is an excellent writer. Danny was the Australian leader of the field work done in Saemangeum for some years leading up to the Ramsar conference.

The book was available as a download, but that may no longer be the case, as it was released last year in an English version, for public sale. Someone might like to correct me if it is still available as a download.

If anyone would like a pdf copy of "Invisible Connections", I would be
happy to send it to them. A warning, though. It is a 21.4 Mb file.

Hi all,
I concur, for what it's worth.....
May I suggest all interested parties purchase that gem of a publication, "Invisible Connections", Why Migrating Shorebirds Need the Yellow Sea. A
host of authors, with unbelievable photos by Jan van de Kam, who
captures all facets of the miraculous, migrating shorebirds. I seem to
remember CSIRO published it. (I have no financial interest in this - but
the book is a must as part of our understanding of the
Asian-Australasian Flyway....and, a joy to behold).

One day minuscule satellite tags will be available to help in detecting
the movement of even those smallest of birds - to help protect
them...THAT is what it's about. And, let's not get anthropomorphic guys....
