The BirdLife's Partnership's work at the recent Conference of the Parties (COP10) to the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species has paid dividends with important decisions taken for the benefit of migratory species.
Dr Markus Nipkow, Officer for Ornithology and Bird Conservation of NABU/BirdLife Germany, explains how the danger of powerlines to birds can be mitigated.
Protecting birds from power lines is a global issue which can’t be solved by single states yet a number of practical mitigation measures exist.
The BirdLife International Partnership seek endorsement for conference resolutions which, if adopted, could help halt or reverse the catastrophic decline in numbers of many migratory species of birds.
Populations of long-distance migratory landbirds are declining rapidly in the African-Eurasian flyway and urgent actions are needed across regions.
BirdLife wants approval for resolution to improve the conservation status of African-Eurasian migratory landbirds.
Poisoning – both deliberate and accidental – is one of the major problems facing migratory birds worldwide.
BirdLife International is challenging the energy sector to improve the bird safety standards of powerlines in Europe.
BirdLife International is supporting a proposal on addressing climate change issues for migratory species.
BirdLife Internatiional is supporting the proposal for listing Saker Falcon on the CMS list of Endangered Migratory Species.
