by Bern Convention category: Animals
An estimated 36 million birds per year are illegally killed while they migrate in the Mediterranean region, causing some species to decline by up to 30%; and even disappear completely from some regions.
This profitable, well set up, environmental crime has devastating
effects on birds and on biodiversity as a whole. Killed or trapped in huge
numbers, some species are being driven to extinction.
The campaign #TheLastTweet is launched on Twitter on the 24th of October, involves fictional stories of four birds from the most affected species, to raise awareness about these untold stories. All of them will be available at http://thelasttweet.eu/
The Bern Convention is a binding international legal instrument in the field of nature conservation, covering most of the natural heritage of the European continent and extending to some States of Africa.
