In 2021 we are marking 30 years of WLI cooperation by sourcing 30 neat ideas from WLI members. Today we hear from the Society for the Conservation of Philippine Wetlands. 

Description: In line with the celebration of World Migratory Bird Day and the EAAFP theme for 2019-2020 (Flyways – Connecting People and Migratory Waterbirds), the SCPW organized an event called Click it! Sketch it! – an activity for nature/wildlife photographers, graphic arts students and children in the local community to come together for a learning event that revolved around the importance of migratory birds, the threats posed by plastic pollution to their very existence and what they can do to help protect these wildlife and their habitats.

The learning events employed approaches and methods including seminar, hands-on training on wildlife photography, interaction with local birding guides, and interaction with the children in the community through arts and storytelling.


Learning and conservation outcomes: People (youth, children, and adults) with increased awareness about the relationship of wetland ecosystems and migratory birds.

Audience: Children, youth, and adults (including nature photographers, graphic artists)

Cost: USD1,500 (One-day activity)

Key themes: Migratory birds, flyways and wetlands

Equipment/resources required: Art materials, cameras and binoculars for birdwatching, resource persons
