Bird Migration

Migratory Birds Know No Boundaries (Birds Monitoring) Background The Middle East, located at the juncture of three continents, Europe, Asia and Africa, makes it a region second to none in the world for tracking, research and study of the phenomenon of bird migration. The Middle East is a “bottle neck” for the migration from Europe and to Africa and back. More than 500 million birds pass over the Middle East twice a year in the autumn and spring migration. The Middle East is famous throughout the world for continuous warfare since the dawning of history. It has been decided to utilize the bird migration as a perfect vehicle for cooperation between nations in the region, and to emphasize joint educational endeavors for students in the region schools under the heading “Migrating Birds Know No Boundaries”.
