Kyle Magnuson (United States of America):
Upon visiting Suncheon Bay I quickly came to the conclusion that these highly diverse tidal flats will become a WHS in the near future. One of the most beautiful places in Korea. I am now very interested in visiting some other tidal flat sites in Korea. Besides Suncheon, there are 5 other major tidal flat locations in southwestern Korea. I expect this nomination to be inscribed during the 2013 or 2014 WHC. Suncheon Bay is pristine and picturesque. The tidal flats are home to a diverse range of species, from various types of crabs to a multitude of common and rare birds. This important coastal wetland was registered on the Ramsar wetland list in 2006.
