A unique fundraising event where 16 teams will be competing in a trilling 24 hours Big Day in the southern Negev desert around birding hotspot Eilat.

The Champions of the Flyway is dedicated to preventing the illegal killing of migratory birds on the Africa-Eurasian Flyway. In August 2015, the shocking extent of the slaughter around the Mediterranean was revealed by a study “The Killing” published by BirdLife International. Around 25 million birds, mainly songbirds, are killed illegally there by shooters and trappers every year! Download a copy of this definitive report here.

The Dutch Knighs are one of the supporting teams, raising awerness to these slaughter but also trying to raise money for the cause.
