Birds of pray and their migration routes

We're in one of the most famous areas for birdwatching, in the middle of the route of migrating birds of prey that cross the Strait of Gibraltar from Africa and are headed to Europe for nesting. 

Together with our ornithologist, we'll walk from Arenzano to the Scarpeggin hut and during the trekking we'll learn about habits, routes, and journeys of the various species that we'll observe during the day.

Binoculars are recommended.

Partecipation is free, booking is mandatory.

Protect our feathered friends!

Primary School students will be engaged in the art installation and story telling session. Selected students will showcase a dance performance to spread this year's World Migratory Bird Day theme of Light Pollution, with the slogan "Dim the lights for birds at night!" . We will also discuss ecological imbalance and conservation of migratory birds and their habitat.

World Migratory Bird Day is an annual event for educating the public about the urgent conservation needs of migratory birds and their habitats. On Saturday, May 14, join Pipestone National Monument for a fun and informative day of activities for the whole family! 

World Migratory Bird Day

Wildlife Science and Conservation Center is a leading nature conservation and research organization in Mongolia, and we always considered the World Migratory Bird Day as an important annual event for our public engagement and education. We regularly celebrated the WMBD with the support from EAAFP and other partners. In 2022, we are planning to host WMBD events at two bird ringing stations located eastern and eastern Mongolia. These ringing stations are run by WSCC and dedicated to the songbird migration monitoring and public awareness for Mongolia.
