WORLD MIGRATORY BIRD DAY 2013

The International Fund for Houbara Conservation (IFHC), in partnership with the Abu Dhabi Education Council (ADEC), is inviting children from local schools to visit to our Houbara conservation centre located in Sweihan - Abu Dhabi. As part of the visit programme they will assist in releasing captive-bred Houbara into the wild and will be shown a video about the migration of the Houbara by our ecologists, who will provide a commentary on the work of IFHC in preserving the Houbara. Working with ADEC, the Houbara is now part of the national education curriculum and the school children will make presentations based on their research in response to the curriculum requirements. Broadcast and print media will be in attendance to ensure the message about World Migratory Bird Day is spread as far as possible across the UAE.
