The Magic of Migration: Actions that keep migratory birds flying across borders
Conservation of migratory birds is one of the highest priorities for BirdLife International, the World’s largest partnership of conservation organisations. With Partners throughout the migration routes of birds and strong collaborations with other organisations and governments, we are well-placed to link local actions to flyway-scale collaboration.

The talks in this webinar will bring you up-to-speed with some of the remarkable achievements made for migratory birds. From cracking down on illegal hunting in Cyprus to keeping Egyptian Vultures safe from colliding with energy infrastructures on their travels between Bulgaria and Ethiopia. We will speak about the conservation of coastal wetlands that increases the chances for the critically endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper and many other shorebirds in the East Asian – Australasian Flyway, and about how collaboration with beef producers is beneficial to the birds that rely on the vast grasslands of South America.

Join us and be inspired by our experts from across the flyways. The magic of migration is worth it.

Did you know?
• The longest recorded non-stop flight of a migratory birds was 11,600 KILOMETRES. A satellite-tagged Bar-tailed godwit travelled from Alaska to New Zealand in a single, 9-day flight.
• Arctic terns see more daylight than any other creature on the planet. They breed during the Arctic summer in the North and then migrate to enjoy the Antarctic summer in the South.
• Bar-headed geese are one of the highest-flying migrants, crossing the Himalayas at an altitude of 9,000 – 10,000 meters.
• Red knots reduce their gizzards and grow their flight muscles just before migration. After their arrival on the wintering grounds birds are famished but need to wait till their gizzards have grown enough to accommodate food again.

There will be the opportunity to ask questions to our expert speakers at the end of the webinar.
