Migratory Birds and Flyways - Africa

Over 40% of long-distance migrants in the African-Eurasian flyway have shown signs of decline over the last three decades. Of these, 10% are classified by BirdLife as Globally Threatened or Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List. Many of these birds are continuing to disappear.

In an effort to conserve migratory birds, the BirdLife Africa Partnership is contributing to the Global Migratory Birds and Flyways Programme. Several BirdLife Partner NGOs have flyway-related activities in respective countries
