World Migratory Bird Day Partners Statement on World Water Day 2023

World Water Day, celebrated on March 22, is an ideal moment to contemplate the importance of water to migratory birds. Migratory birds rely on water and its associated habitats - lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, all inland and coastal wetlands - for migration, wintering, and breeding. Unfortunately, increasing human demand for water as well as pollution and climate change threaten these precious aquatic ecosystems and the migratory birds that depend on them.

The East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP) was announced as an official Partner of the World Migratory Bird Day campaign during the 11th Meeting of Partners (MOP11) of the EAAFP which ended in Brisbane, Australia today. The new Partnership unites efforts to raise awareness to conserve migratory birds globally. The World Migratory Bird is an annual global awareness-raising campaign to celebrate the amazing journeys of migratory birds, and to inspire worldwide conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. Traditionally observed on the second Saturday of May and October, the two days of World Migratory Bird Day are a way to reflect the cyclical nature of bird migration as well as the fact that there are varying peak migration periods in the northern and southern hemispheres.

Jaguar Range States Look to Strengthen Conservation of their Iconic Big Cat

Between the 1960s and 1970s, jaguars were heavily hunted, with as many as 18,000 killed every year to feed the trade in their skins. In 1975, the trade in jaguar hides was halted thanks to CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), and populations began to stabilize. This week marks the 50th Anniversary of CITES and the 10th edition of World Wildlife Day, whose theme this year celebrates the power of Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation.

Seagrass: Essential to Migratory Species and to Climate Change Mitigation

From the tropics to the Arctic circle, seagrasses are amongst the most widespread coastal habitats on the planet, existing in 159 countries. They are essential both for many migratory species of wild animals, as well as for climate change mitigation. Thousands of species depend on seagrasses for food, nursery grounds, and shelter.  Many others may use seagrass habitats as an important site for feeding along their migratory routes.

Fourteen International Organisations Join Together Ahead of World Wildlife Day 2023

This year’s World Wildlife Day theme of ‘Partnerships for Wildlife Conservation’ highlights the many ways in which people can make a positive difference for wildlife. Wildlife is a key part of natural ecosystems and broader landscapes. Wildlife is also a valuable natural asset which has economic, social, and cultural values from local to international levels. But it is disappearing at a rapid pace. Partnerships are essential to reverse the decline of wildlife and sustain all life on earth.
