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.
The Way-off Coursers are 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 might 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 southern and eastern Europe.
Our team members are Bill Thompson III, Michael O'Brien, George Armistead and Ben Lizdas.
We really need your help to raise funds to put an end to the illegal killing of birds. Please show your support and make a donation today.
If you'd like to stay in touch with all the action, please remember to add your email when you donate so BirdLife can keep you updated on the race and the important conservation action they'll be delivering with your help.
