BirdLife Community launched
Everyone interested in watching, photography or conservation of birds certainly knows BirdLife International. This association is the world’s largest global alliance of conservation organizations that share a joint mission to conserve wild birds, their habitats and global biodiversity. BirdLife International has Partners in over 100 countries, with 2.5 million members and 8 million supporters with these numbers still growing.
I was very happy to learn that Birdlife International launched a new area of their website last summer - The BirdLife Community. Although BirdLife International website was often the first to publish the biggest bird conservation news of the day – certainly great achievement in itself, the BirdLife Community reaches higher - it aspires to be the prime web place for discussing the latest issues in biodiversity protection and there are even more stories being published every week on the BirdLife Community website. Although these are very often painful readings, we all must be aware of the contemporary nature conservancy issues – one of the most striking and saddest stories we have all watched this year on BirdLife website was the Forest fires on the breeding site of Zino’s Petrel in Madeira last August, that killed 3 adults and 65% of the chicks. Zino’s Petrels are the Europe’s rarest seabird and one of the rarest birds in the world… Illegal shooting of migrating birds in Malta and other persisting problems frequenting the website are just on thr tip of the iceberg -iIf you want to help, get involved or just to read about the latest news, connect to the BirdLife Community website at:
