IT IS OUR GREAT PLEASURE TO ANNOUNCE THAT AS OF MARCH 31st 2010, WILDLIFE AND NATURE TRAVEL HAS BECOME A SPECIES CHAMPION SUPPORTING BIRDLIFE INTERNATIONAL'S PREVENTING EXTINCTIONS PROGRAMME
BirdLife International, one of the world’s largest conservation networks, is also the foremost authority on the global status of bird species and acts as the bird authority for the IUCN Red List.
Worldwide as many as 192 bird species are listed by them as Critically Endangered, and without immediate action, many of these species, with rapidly dwindling populations, will be wiped out within just a few years. Extinction is forever, so in order to secure their future, BirdLife has launched the largest international bird conservation program in the world: ‘The BirdLife Preventing Extinctions Programme.’
BirdLife is a non-profit organization, and their program’s success is dependant on funding provided by appropriate international partners, such as Wildlife and Nature Travel. These partners, known as BirdLife Species Champions, recognize the importance of this program and pledge monetary support over a period of several years. >>>
