Thank you for visiting our team's Champions of the Flyway fundraising page.
Champions of the Flyway is a major new international bird race that is being staged in Eilat, Israel – home of one of the world’s most desirable birding destinations and famous migration spectacles.
Dutch Knights is one of several international bird racing teams attempting to find, identify and log as many species as possible as they go head to head with other crack teams in an intense 24 hour contest to win the coveted title 'Champions of the Flyway'.
While the racing will be light-hearted, our goal is serious - to raise conservation funding that will help the BirdLife International Partnership tackle the illegal killing of birds in Cyprus.
Our team members are: Marc Guyt, Gert Ottens and Martijn Verdoes.After weeks of preparation, fund raising, preaching the cause of protecting migrating birds, a thrilling bird race and above all, lots of humor and fun, the 'Focusing on Wildlife Sprinters' were dubbed 'Knights of the Flyway in 2014'. We received this honourable title for being the most helpful team during the race and for generating the greatest exposure for the event and among other acheivements, received 100 donations for the protection of the Flyway!
Please support us in our quest to stop the widespread, illegal killing of migrating birds in Southern Europe again , by making a donation here that will hep the protection of migrating birds along their amazing flyways.
If you'd like to stay in touch with all the action please remember to add your email when you donate so BirdLife International can keep you updated on the race and the all-important conservation action we'll all be delivering with your help.
