In Memoriam: Lew Young, Chief Executive of EAAFP

Bonn, 6 March 2019 – The staff at the AEWA Secretariat were shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Dr Lew Young, the Chief Executive of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP).  Lew, who was 60 years old, died yesterday of a heart attack while attending a meeting in Beijing. 

Lew was a passionate conservationist and a good ally to both AEWA and CMS and he was a strong advocate of the EAAFP participating fully in the World Migratory Bird Day campaign.  He will be sorely missed.

The AEWA Secretariat would like to express its deepest sympathy to Lew’s family and friends at this difficult time.
