Connecting wetland centres across the world

MBP Africa

Migratory Birds for People AfricaMBP logo

MBP Africa covers the East Atlantic Flyway region of Africa (western coastline of Africa) and forms part of the overall MBP project.  We have a Coordinating Group made of partners from Wetlands International West Africa, BirdLife, AEWA, and other local partners, as well as a Terms of Reference for the group.  We have also prepared a workplan, detailing our key aims and objectives.

We are currently working on plans to create an MBP Africa poster, as well as to translate the MBP Film into French and Arabic.  We also aim to attend the Pan African Ornithological Congress in Senegal in October 2016, to run a workshop and a Roundtable Discussion.

If you have any questions, please contact the Head of WLI, or our local representative Gabin Agblonon, Wetlands International.

The WLI network is endorsed by the Ramsar Convention on wetlands and coordinated by WWT.
