Through education and awareness-raising work, the campaign aims to engage the general public in caring for birds and helping to maintain healthy bird populations, as well as protect the habitats used by migratory birds. This includes habitats used for breeding, non-breeding and for "stop overs" during migration.
This year's focus: Energy - Make it Bird Friendly!
Habitat loss and degradation are just some of the effects arising from hydropower, bio-energy, ocean, solar, wind and geothermal technologies. Whilst these renewable energy technologies have positive aspects such as reducing climate change and being more sustainable, they can severely impact wildlife habitats when not properly planned. Proper design and risk assessment are essential to ensuring they do not pose a threat to migratory bird species
