Every Spring and Autumn, migratory birds travel between their wintering and breeding grounds.
Fattening up before their long flights, many birds travel thousands of miles, often to the exact same spot they have returned to for years. Sadly, millions of them don't make it - not just because of the natural perils of the journey, but because they are illegally shot, trapped and poisoned by humans.
Osprey, White Stork, Blackcap, Honey Buzzard....there is no species left untouched.
"We work in over 100 countries and territories across the World. We lead in the identification of threats to migratory birds and highlight areas of urgent conservation action.
We develop solutions that last. For example, we work with communities in illegal killing blackspots on their sustainable development, and visit schools to ensure future generations enjoy nature and understand the impacts of illegal killing of migratory birds.
We lobby governments for the protection of birds. For example, we successfully advocated governments in the Mediterranean region to commit to a 50% reduction of illegal killing in 10 years. And we make sure that governments follow-through on their promises.
We are in the field to understand what is going on. Highlighting where illegal activities are taking place and supporting law enforcement where needed. We also train sniffer dogs to detect deliberately poisoned bait.
Help us to put an end to the illegal killing of migratory birds. Your support will enable BirdLife International to take action around the globe. Together we can ensure safe passage of migratory birds and continue to enjoy the wonder of migration".
