Republic Of Korea-Australia Migratory Bird Agreement

At each meeting, Australia presents a national report outlining the activities that have contributed to the national implementation of the Migratory Bird Agreements. 5. The Republic of Korea and Australia acknowledge that ROKAMBA is used to exchange information on methods of reducing bycating bycating catches, rather than taking legal action against both countries in relation to bycating catches. However, ROKAMBA does not absone Australia and the Republic of Korea from their obligations under other agreements to which they are parties, such as the CCSBT and CCAMLR, in order to mitigate bycatch of migratory birds and does not prevent both parties from intervening in other agreements to which they are or are not parties. If the above provisions are acceptable to the Government of the Republic of Korea, I also have the honour of proposing that this notification and your confirmation of confirmation in your response constitute an essential and integral part of ROKAMBA and an agreement between our two governments, which will come into force on the day of roKAMBA`s entry into force. Accept, Excellency, the renewed assurances of my highest esteem. Migratory birds include species such as hookahs, sandpipers, nestlings, fallow birds and pieces. 3. Each contracting party may establish seasons and hunting areas for migratory bird hunting, taking into account the annual reproduction necessary for the survival of these birds. Migratory birds and their habitats are protected internationally because: (d) for hunting and collection of certain migratory birds or their eggs by the inhabitants of certain areas that have traditionally engaged in such activities for food, clothing or cultural purposes, provided that the population of each species is maintained in optimal numbers and that the proper conservation of the species is not compromised.

At least two million migratory waterbirds visit Australia each year during our summer. The loss and deterioration of wetlands poses a major threat to migratory waterfowl and the preservation of important areas, both in Australia and along their migratory routes, is essential to their survival. Many pressures contribute to this deterioration, which is of particular concern to population growth and the resulting coastal development. Section 209 (1) of the Act establishes a list of migratory species (the list) in the appendices of the Bonn Convention and in the annexes of the Circulation Birds Agreement (JAMBA), the Migratory Bird Agreement between China and Australia (CAMBA) or any other international agreement approved by the Minister (Republic of Korea-Australia). Migratory species in Australia, Japan, China and the Republic of Korea are listed in all three agreements. These incredible birds hike 26,000 kilometres a year between their summer breeding sites in the northern hemisphere and their forage areas to the south. These journeys will take several weeks, with short stops at the stations on the way to rest and refueling for the next leg of their journey.
