Iraqi Organisation for Conservation of Nature: WMBD2017

The protection of birds, and in particular migratory birds, and the conservation of their habitats are gaining greater attention in many countries including Iraq. We in the Iraqi Organisation for Conservation of Nature (IOCN) are increasingly noticing this focus on birds through our interactions with the various relevant bodies here in Iraq as well as in our contact with many local communities. We hope that this increased interest in birds represents the fruition of the long-term initiative started more than a decade ago by the Iraqi Ministry for the Environment in liaison with the IOCN team.

The IOCN in liaison with college of science in University of AL-Qadisiyah will celebrate in the World Migratory Bird Day on May 10 2017. This event will including some activities like educational activities, an environmental awareness program and birdwatching.
