About this book

A marked decline in some swiftlet populations has been attributed to pressure from the harvesting of the nests for consumption in Chinese cuisine and as a tonic and medicine by Chinese communities. This report documents the history of the trade and provides a preliminary assessment of the total volume of trade.
