WLI / Ramsar Secretariat CEPA focal point survey
We have just sent a message to all CEPA coordinators, asking them for information about the wetland centers they know in their country, and we are starting to receive answers. If you know of any wetland center that would like to become a member of the WLI, please let us know at the WLI email address.

Migratory birds for people of Africa
The recent Skype meeting with our partners from MBP Africa has shown the enthusiasm with which people want to be even more involved in our network. The group would like to involve as many African countries as possible in WRM work, ultimately all African countries along the entire length of the eastern Atlantic flyway. It is also planned to take part in the Pan-African Ornithological Congress, which will be held this year in Senegal.

WLI of both Americas
After much discussion, we decided to combine the WLIs of North America and the WLIs of Latin America and the Caribbean to create the WLIs of the Americas. It fits much better with the theme of the flyways, and also allows you to work with partners on the continental level, such as the WHSRN and the Ramsar Committee. Our new initiative group has already met, and we are in the process of changing the structure of the website and WLI. Follow the news soon!

Flying Swans, Europe

A unique WWT project on a paragliding span along the migratory path of a small swan has just been launched! Partners gathered at the Royal Geographical Society in central London on January 27 to celebrate. In September 2016, our colleague, Ms. Sasha Dench, plans to fly from the Russian Arctic to Lake Ladoga and St. Petersburg, then through the Baltic States, Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium, and finally through the English Channel to the UK. Along the way, she will stop at wetland centers, visit community organizations, and photograph amazing landscapes and people she will meet – this journey promises to be exciting! If you want to follow the project, look for “Flight of the Swans” (Flight of the Swans) on Facebook, or @WWTSwanFlight on Twitter.
