Connecting wetland centres across the world

Funding opportunity for “Migratory Birds for People” in progress……

LeeuwardenProject: “The Black-tailed Godwit – King of the meadows”

In the context of Leeuwarden Cultural Capital 2018 a bid for an Erasmus grant is requested in which Staatsbosbeheer Terschelling also participates. The Godwit features as a symbol for the preservation of bio-cultural diversity in Europe. At our request the Spoonbill has been added as an indicator for good wetland management. Part of the program is a communication and education project in which students and young managers travel with the birds and hereby utilize visitors centres of the “Migratory Birds for People”- network inthe breeding and wintering areas and along the migration route. If a positive decision is made, the project can be further developed with interested centers in France, Portugal, Spain and possibly also African countries.
