Story

All of us have already been lucky enough to be able to enjoy bird migration at several different places all around the world. No matter if you look at huge noisy flocks of cranes or just at a single pipit passing by your window on its way south, watching birds migrating is always a great experience!

Although bird migration has fascinated people for thousands of years, it still holds many uncovered mysteries. Unfortunately, many species of birds are in danger of being chased and poached on their impressive routes and millions lose their lives every migration season.

This year's donations will be used to protect the rapidly declining vultures populations from poisoning and illegal killing in the Great Rift Valley (Africa).

The international bird race "Champions Of The Flyways" taking place in Eilat/Southern Israel aims to raise worldwide awareness and funding to protect migrating birds on the spot. Our team "Besh Birders" takes part in this great event and we are inviting everyone to support our initiative to protect migrating birds along their adventurous routes. Every amount can make a difference! Thank you very much!

Wir alle konnten an verschiedensten Orten der Welt bereits den Zug der Vögel beobachten und genießen - ein immer wieder großartiges Erlebnis! Dabei spielt es gar keine Rolle, ob man hunderten laut trompetenden Kranichen hinterschaut oder der Blick an dem kleinen Wiesenpieper hängen bleibt, der vor dem Fenster nach Süden zieht.

Obwohl der Vogelzug die Menschen seit Jahrtausenden fasziniert, ist dieser längst nicht komplett entschlüsselt. Leider geraten viele Vogelarten auf ihren Zugwegen ins Visier von Wilderern und Jägern, so dass Millionen von Vögeln jedes Jahr ihr Ziel nicht erreichen.

Die Spenden des diesjährigen Birdraces kommen dem Schutz gefährdeter Geier im Great Rift Valley (Afrika) zu Gute, die aktuelll durch illegale Bejagung bedroht sind.

Das internationale Birdrace "Champions Of the Flyways" in Eilat/Israel rückt das Thema in die Öffentlichkeit und sammelt Spenden, um regionale Initiativen beim Kampf gegen die Wilderei zu unterstützen. Wir nehmen als Team "Besh Birders" an diesem tollen Projekt teil. Daher freuen wir uns über alle Spenden für den Schutz der Zugvögel - jeder Groschen zählt!
