International Bird observatory Conference in Eilat

This March, several special events took place in Eilat at the same time – the International Bird Observatories Conference along with the annual Spring Migration Festival, the Champions of the Flyway and the Arts and Nature community event. Through all these events, people were enabled to see birds and their habitats in a very direct and clear way.

A wonderful time with many positive outputs – for example, the Champions of the Flyway raised a record sum for one Birdlife partner, over 75,000$ for conservation of Vultures in Kenya. Never before so many birders came to watch the wonder of migration in Eilat and at the same time supported the efforts to keep it safe.
