Is bird migration an annual cycle? An education and conservation campaign around the W-Arly-Pendjari complex.

World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) will be celebrated in Benin by SOS Savane, a conservation NGO. We will be hosting virtual and physical events to commemorate WYDL.

For the first phase of May 08, on our social networks we had to raise awareness and bring our public to act for migratory birds. To mark the second phase of October 09, here are some ideas to inspire World Migration Day this year with communities and schools around the Pendjari complex which is home to the Pendjari River, Ramsar site 1669.
