So now the “Big Day” has finally arrived and our team – “The Sprinters” – is competing in a 24 hour marathon for the coveted title “Champions of the Flyway”.
The event is taking place today in Eilat, Israel and there are a total of 14 teams in the race – from England (5), USA (3), Holland (1) , Belgium (1), Israel (1), Palestine (1), Sweden (1) and Georgia (1).
While the racing might be light-hearted, the goal is to raise funds, so that the illegal killing of birds in Southern and Eastern Europe can be tackled. Many birding and wildlife enthusiasts have responded to the appeal and £20,000 has already been donated to BirdLife International.
Take a look at the shocking photos at the bottom of this mail to convince yourself about the need for urgent action. Hunting and trapping of migrating birds is still being extensively practiced in many European countries. e.g. France, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Malta, Albania, Croatia, Georgia.
For more information please click on the link below, leave us a message of support and help migrating birds WIN the “Race for Conservation”.
Don’t delay: Do it today!
Thanks in advance for your support
