Migratory Birds Preventing Poisoning

Migratory birds in Asia are under big threat of direct and indirect poisonings

Agro-ecosystems of rice paddies as well as other field crops have been under high pressure of pesticide use all over Asian countries during the past decades, with no regulations and enforcement. Heavy pesticide use not only ended to some local disasters but also had big impact on biodiversity in Asian wetlands and so on migratory birds.

Please see my first message 10 years ago: "How pesticides are handled in developing countries" (on Google search), as I mentioned in this first message the big problem was and unfortunately still is: lack of proper regulations and in particular no enforcement. We found shocking evidences of migratory birds kills by unregulated use of insecticides (Toledo, Spain, CMS preventing poisoning).

In the occasion of this year migratory bird's day I will organize a demonstration in the "FereydunKenar" Mazandaran, Iran, where I lived more than 10 years to help preventing migratory bird poisonings.
