SAVE International has been working locally with groups in Taiwan, Korea, and Japan to protect the habitat of the endangered black-faced spoonbill.
In SAVE’s early years, our work was primarily focussed on protecting the most important wintering habitat — the Tseng-wen Estuary in Taiwan — from industrial development proposals, but we have extended our efforts. SAVE is now also working actively in Korea to save important breeding (summer) habitat and in Japan, China, and other parts of Taiwan to save additional wintering and migration-stopover habitat.
A lot has been happening about the Jiading Wetland 茄萣濕地 and the nearby Yong-An Wetland 永安濕地. The latest activities are at the bottom of this page.
