Birdfair 2015 funds pledged to reduce illegal killing of migrant birds
The organisers of the 2015 Birdfair at Rutland Water this August have revealed details of their latest fund raising project: ‘Hope for migratory birds in the Eastern Mediterranean: action against illegal killing’.
The aim of the project will be to reduce the scale and impact of the illegal killing of migratory birds crossing to Europe from Africa, and to improve protection and laws throughout the region.
Birdfair Co-Organiser, Tim Appleton, says: “I am delighted that through Birdfair we can highlight the major issues for migrating birds in this region of the Eastern Mediterranean.
“Millions of birds are being slaughtered illegally as they fly to their breeding grounds and then return to their wintering grounds. It has to stop before it’s too late for many vulnerable species.”
The Eastern Mediterranean is used by hundreds of millions of migratory birds twice yearly on their migration between Europe and Africa, each spring and autumn.
