Are you ready for some acronyms? World Migratory Bird Day is a truly global effort – involving partnerships from across the earth.
The Convention on Migratory Species (CMS), the African-Eurasian Waterbird Agreement (AEWA), and Environment for the Americas (EFTA) have joined forces to strengthen global recognition and appreciation of migratory birds. The East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership (EAAFP) will also play an active role in promoting WMBD along the East Asian-Australasian flyway and is in the process of working closely with CMS, AEWA and EFTA in becoming an official partner of WMBD in the near future.
