Spreading the word on migratory birds

13 May

A major bird conservation conference has been held in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.

The Summit for Flyways took place from 23-26 April and brought together over 100 top bird scientists, conservationists, donors and policy influencers to discuss efforts to conserve migratory birds and their habitats.

The United Arab Emirates is a refuge for a variety of terrestrial and marine migratory birds, and the conference saw the launch by the Ornithological Society of the Middle East, the Caucasus and Central Asia (OSME) of a new Arabic language Birds of the Middle East field guide app.

The event also saw the launch of BirdLife International’s State of the World’s Birds 2018. Five years in the making, it provides a snapshot of the health of not only the world’s birds, but the ecosystems they represent.

BirdLife International organized the event, in association with UN Environment’s Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals, and others.
