Migratory Birds

Did you know that 8,000 to 10,000 of the world's 1.7 million described species migrate? Most animals migrate for different food sources, a place to over-winter and/or to reproduce. Migrating species are found in every ecosystem on land, in the water and of course, in the air.

This film will allow you to ride along the voyages of 4 different types of migratory birds that spend a part of their life cycle in Canada and show what is done to ensure their survival.

Inventory of the nests of migratory birds in urban areas

The Croatian Society for Bird and Nature Protection is organizing the collection and archiving of data on the locations of nests and colonies of migratory birds in towns and villages all over Croatia. Participation in this action refers to the general public.

The situation has deteriorated significantly, especially in urban areas. The nests are falling down, some even in times of breeding.
