Join the celebration of a great natural wonder on World Migratory Bird Day! Take action and celebrate, conserve and raise awareness of migratory birds on or around 10 May 2016 by organizing educational programmes, lectures, bird walks, visits to bird-watching sites, competitions, art exhibitions and other public events.
the website for the 2016 World Migratory Bird Day is now online and organizers are invited to register their events. The design of this year’s poster (see below) has also been finalized and print copies will be available along with other promotional materials such as postcards and stickers.
A new study on protected areas and global conservation of migratory birds has just been published in Science calling for greater international efforts to conserve migratory bird species, many of which are not adequately protected across their range.
For the second year running, the Secretariats of CMS and AEWA jointly organized a benefit concert in Bonn, Germany as their contribution to the global celebration of World Migratory Bird Day. This year’s concert aimed to raise funds for the White-winged Flufftail, a Critically Endangered bird species, which is thought to have a population of less than 250 individuals remaining in the wild.
