Statement by Mr. George Aman on World Migratory Bird Day 2018

Rüdiger StrempelMr. George Aman

President of the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC)

The CIC supports this year's theme "Unifying our Voices for Bird Conservation" in principle and recognizes that the main threat facing migratory birds at present is the loss, degradation and fragmentation of their breeding, staging and wintering habitats, in addition to harmful substances in the environment. The CIC has continuously informed its members about the science and developments of the subject lead in ammunition and many CIC members have voluntarily changed to non-lead ammunition and are collecting experiences to provide feedback to the ammunition producing industry for further improvements of the alternative ammunition.
