Statements to Mark World Migratory Bird Day 2017

Key World Migratory Bird Day supporters and partners from around the world provided statements on the value of migratory bird conservation, the World Migratory Bird Day campaign and this year's theme. They all agree: migratory birds are exposed to various threats and therefore urgent action is needed to conserve them.

With this year's World Migratory Bird Day theme "Their Future is Our Future", they all express a strong and common message: Taking care of migratory birds, as part of the wider ecological balance, also means taking care of us, agreeing to share and protect the planet, for a better future for all of us.

All statements we receive will be added to this page as soon as they are made available to us. You are very welcome to add a statement on behalf of your organisation. Please contact us contact[at]worldmigratorybirdday.org
