In line with this year’s theme for World Migratory Bird Day (Protect Birds: Be the Solution to Plastic Pollution) and the EAAFP theme for 2019-2020 (Flyways – Connecting People and Migratory Waterbirds), the SCPW will conduct an activity for nature and wildlife photographers, graphic arts students and grade-schoolers in the local community to come together for a learning event that will revolve around the importance of migratory birds, the threats posed by plastic pollution to their very existence and what they can do to help protect this wildlife and their habitats. The participants for this activity are those sectors with the potential to translate these images to communication materials that can help promote the protection of these migratory birds as well as wetland conservation.
