New website provides update on Kenya's Tana River Delta sugercane project

The Tana River Delta is one of the three largest and most important freshwater wetland systems in Kenya with a significant local community of cattle herders and others depending on it for their livelihoods. The Tana wetlands are also considered a last haven for African wildlife in this heavily developed part of East Africa's coast. The delta covers an area of 130,000ha (320,000 acres) and is comprised of a diverse range of habitats, which support a significant variety of wildlife, including many species of waterbirds.

The new website is collating recent news and other website reports relating to the Tana River Delta, including stories from both Wetlands International and BirdLife International on the issue. For more information please visit:

The idea behind FLYWAY NEWS is to collect current waterbird and wetland conservation related news from different sources and from across Africa and Eurasia and to feature it on one central page. Our goal is to try to give visitors a simple overview of topics, stories and issues currently "making headlines" in the international waterbird and wetland conservation community.

News items featured on this page come from and link back to a number of known sources (see list below). The only selection criteria we apply is that the news is related to waterbird and wetland conservation (in the broadest sense) in the African-Eurasian region.

Please help us keep this page updated, by sending us relevant news or by pointing us to other online news sources you may know.
