Strengthened international cooperation to help migratory birds

Strengthened international cooperation is needed to secure the hunting of migratory birds in the future. Following a couple of successful meetings, hunting organizations of seven Northwest European countries have established the Waterfowlers’ Network. The agenda of this newly established network is to enhance populations of migratory birds through international projects and collaboration on data collection, sustainable harvest and improvement of habitats for migratory birds. Migratory birds must be managed with a strong scientific basis across national borders if we want to ensure sustainable populations, thus the network will also focus on sharing experiences and new knowledge – and on gaining a better understanding of the drivers of population changes etc.
