Press Information in accordance with migratory birds in collection

On the occasion of the WMBD on 12-13 May 2007 the Dortmund Zoo highlights the threats for three of its bird species caused by climate change. The Zoo will publish a press release with information concerning migratory birds. In this particular case, the White Stork, the Crane, and the Turtledove serve to represent the many other migratory birds facing the loss of their habitats and changes to their migration patterns, which endanger their survival.

Presentation on Migratory Birds and Climate Change / Visit of Ramsar site

This set of events includes a presentation on the topic of \'Migratory Birds and Climate Change\' (French) and a visit to a local Ramsar site in Madagascar. WMBD will further be promoted as part of this.

Press release

We are going to send a press release about the WMBD later this week, and the chosen subject, climate change. We couldn\'t organize something more ambitious, since this event was out of our schedule when we planned the year. We hope next year we can participate more actively, specially if the date is little bit sooner in the year.
