World Migratory Bird Day

Balochistan in Pakistan lies on the Black Sea/Mediterranean and the Central Asian Flyway. Migratory birds, which are coming from the freezing north have one of their stop over sites here, where they take refuge before they move further south. Balochistan provides numerous valleys, lakes and vast areas, which attract migratory birds.

The Balochistan Conservation Society plans to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day with an awareness raising walk on the main avenues of Quetta City with the participation of school children and youth organizations. Beside this, Balochistan Conservation Society aims to hold a awareness raising workshop with the aim to formulate a resolution for the protection of migratory birds.
