Bernie Krause, a soundscape ecologist, shows us how ecosystems are under threat. Ever wondered what extinction sounds like? #TheirFutureOurFuture #WMBD2017 Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals


Jonny Rankin, a British birdwatching enthusiast, developed the 'Dove Step' initiative to try to save the Turtle Dove, a #migratorybird, which has declined by 80% in Europe since 1980. He will walk over 700 miles of the bird’s migratory route in Spain to raise awareness and funding for the conservation of this species. #WMBD2017 #TheirFutureOurFuture BirdLife International Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals http://bit.ly/2kddI1A


There are as few as 100 breeding pairs of spoon-billed sandpipers in the wild and at a rate of 25 percent rate of decline each year, the species could be extinct within a decade. http://bit.ly/2mrYxGk #TheirFutureOurFuture #WMBD2017


The Yellow Sea is an important stopover site for many #migratorybirds, including the spoon-billed sandpiper. Conserving these wetlands is necessary to ensure the survival of waterbird species. http://bit.ly/2jT3t4v #TheirFutureOurFuture #WMBD2017


Migratory birds are truly incredible and they are under threat! Learn more about their perilous journeys, as landscapes are developed and stopover sites vanish. Birds provide insect control, pollination and seed dispersal, so without them the world would be a very different place. http://bit.ly/2k6II6V #TheirFutureOurFuture - A healthy planet for #migratorybirds and people #WMBD2017

Griffon Vultures are crucial #migratorybirds of the Serengeti food chain because they clean carcasses. Sadly, they are endandered due to widespread poisoning: http://bit.ly/1V6PF3n #WMBD2017 #TheirFutureOurFuture
