World Shorebirds Day 2016

Tomorrow – 6 September – is the World Shorebirds Day! It is an annual celebration of shorebirds, those extreme migrants, as well as people, who do the most for them.

The Global Shorebird Counting Program (2-6 September 2016) is one of the key events of the World Shorebirds Day, an effort to raise awareness about the importance of regular bird monitoring/counting as the core element of protection of bird populations and habitat conservation.
