Migratory Birds for People
We have designed a poster that you can tailor to your own centres – we can provide the design file for you to add your own logo, pictures and examples, for display at your centre. Contact Chris Rostron to arrange for us to send it to you.
We also have an updated map – thanks to Theo de Bruin and Edorta Unamuno for producing it!
Optics for Africa
Where possible, MBP visitor centres in Europe collect binoculars and telescopes and share them with members in West Africa.
Adil Boulahia of WWT hands over 12 sets of binoculars to Ibrahim Hama of Wetlands International West Africa. WWT Slimbridge donated this first batch of optics in October 2019.
We invite any member centre to participate! Find out how.
Discover the East Atlantic Flyway through games! The MBP flyway map is an educational resource developed by MBP members, a fabric map of 2 x 1.5 metres. You can download a free guidebook of activities, compiled by the network.
