Colliding with glass is a big danger for birds. This year, our children’s programme Spring Alive inspired young people across Europe and Central Asia to take action to make their windows bird-safe, transforming schools, homes and reaching millions through prime time TV.
Why do birds collide with windows, and how can we help? We explore the science behind bird collisions and dispel some common myths about how to prevent them, shining a spotlight on exciting projects across the world that are making a real difference. And you can join in!
Spring has officially sprung and so has Spring Alive – BirdLife International’s annual campaign to introduce children across Europe, Central Asia and Africa to the joys of spring and the wonder that is nature.
Throughout 2017, conservationists have been visiting schools and communities across Eurasia and Africa as part of BirdLife's Spring Alive project. At the end of the year, Spring Alive reflects on some of the most exciting ways of inspiring both children and adults about migratory birds and nature.
Six European nature conservation organisations have come together with the University of Gdańsk to provide school teachers with the innovative teaching resources and training needed to develop young children’s environmental awareness.
One of the most familiar and popular birds in the world is declining. Rather than being sad, let's celebrate the swallows of our neighbourhood because they give a great start for young people to care about conservation.
Every once in a while, you come across a little story that makes you smile, makes you breathe a sigh of hope. A small act that could be easily missed, but which represents something a lot bigger. This story is one of those stories.
Soon, migratory birds will be arriving in Europe and Asia from their wintering grounds in Africa. Nature is getting ready for their arrival; are you? Make your garden or balcony bird-friendly with Spring Alive!
