News - The China Post - Bird watchers in Taiwan not at risk of avian flu

Bird watchers in Taiwan are not in danger of contracting deadly avian flu from nomadic and migratory birds, according to ornithologists and conservationists attending an international waterbirds conference.

Liao Shih-chin, vice chairman of the symposium, said it is the general consensus of the scientists and bird watchers that Taiwan is not affected by the bird flu.

He said participants at the gathering also agreed that Taiwan offers a superb environment for eco-tours in view of the wide variety of wildlife resources, convenient transportation services, public safety and friendliness of the people.
