Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is one of the world's most biodiverse regions, but this diversity is threatened by the overexploitation of natural resources and internal social conflicts. In 2018, 33 LAC countries were invited to sign and ratify the landmark Escazú Agreement, which is the first legally binding environmental agreement to expli...

Multiple stressors threaten seabirds, and governance, understood as the mechanisms for achieving collection action goals, plays a key role in their conservation. However, conservation-related research on these taxa has primarily focused on biological and management dimensions, with little attention given to understanding and improving overarching c...

Understanding the sets of co-existing institutional arrangements and the role of different actors for transboundary conservation is not only paramount for migratory species survival but also for studying the transformation of international politics. We analyze the global environmental governance architecture for conserving migratory shorebirds in t...

Highlights from international meetings on migratory waterbird conservation in the Asia-Pacific - Volume 53 Issue 2 - Eduardo Gallo-Cajiao, Micha V. Jackson, Tong Mu, Richard A. Fuller
Article

Raising funds is critical for conserving biodiversity and hence so too is scrutinizing emerging financial mechanisms that might help achieve this goal. In this context, anecdotal evidence indicates crowdfunding is being used to support a variety of activities needed for biodiversity conservation, yet its magnitude and allocation remain largely unkn...
Chapter
From its beginnings in the 1960s, shorebird monitoring in Australia has grown into a national effort generating high-quality information about a large group of migratory and non-migratory waterbirds. Robust information on trends, combined with detailed demographic monitoring and studies of bird movements, has revealed drastic declines, particularly...
Article
Full-text available
Coastal armouring and the reclamation of intertidal areas through the use of seawalls and other artificial structures has been practiced for thousands of years, but its recent expansion in China and elsewhere in Asia has been unprecedented in its rate and intensity. One result has been the recent loss of nearly two-thirds of tidal flats in the Yell...

Singapore hosts international efforts for conserving migratory waterbirds in the Asia-Pacific - Volume 51 Issue 2 - Eduardo Gallo-Cajiao, Micha V. Jackson, Stephanie Avery-Gomm, Richard A. Fuller
Article
Full-text available
Migratory movements of animals frequently span political borders and the need for international collaboration in the conservation of migratory species is well recognized. There is, however, less appreciation of the need for coordinated protection within nations. We explore consequences of multilevel governance for top-down implementation of interna...

Shorebirds complete some of the most incredible migrations, but their conservation is at a crossroads in a region where coastal management is highly contested.

A milestone for migratory waterbird conservation in Asia–Pacific - Volume 49 Issue 3 - Eduardo Gallo-Cajiao, Richard A. Fuller
Article

Primate populations have declined and disappeared from many localities of the Colombian Andes as a result of habitat loss and hunting pressure. The original forest cover of this mountainous region has been cleared by 70%, even though there has been a recent recovery of the area. Additionally, hunting practices have extirpated populations from other...

To examine the current management of trawl fisheries is important to ensure albatross mortality is not being overlooked. By-catch of albatrosses in trawl fisheries occurs cryptically, which has hindered the development of conservation policy. The implementation of tasked seabird observer programmes in trawl fisheries, nevertheless, has shown that a...

The diet of the Blackburnian Warbler (Dendroica fusca) has been reported to include mainly insects and occasionally fruits. We observed this species eating Andean Oak (Quercus humboldtii) catkins in the Colombian Andes. Apparently an opportunistic exploitation of a temporarily superabundant resource, this phenomenon has been reported for other wint...
