A call for cooperation: Saving the places migratory birds call home

Partners across the African-Eurasian Flyway are pleased to present 'A Call for Cooperation: Saving the Places Migratory Birds Call Home', a production of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Center for Conservation Media.

Jan van Gils, Eva Kok and Thomas Lameris contributed to this video with the Red Knot tracking simulations.

Critical sites  

This film showcases the beauty of a number of critical sites across the African-Eurasian Flyway, identifies how they are connected by the journeys of our migratory waterbirds, and stresses the importance of these sites for both migratory waterbirds and people. There is an urgent need to increase the protection of many sites and to work together in the Flyway to ensure migratory waterbirds have reliable, high quality wintering, staging and breeding sites for their survival.

With this video, partners across the African-Eurasian Flyway are calling on all relevant actors to take action to benefit migratory waterbirds and their critical sites. Join the efforts of existing international and regional organisations, national governments, stakeholders, scientists and local communities working towards this common goal.
