Threats and hazards to migrating birds

Amenazas y peligros para las aves migratorias.

¿Te preocupa el daño que se está haciendo a los espacios naturales de tu entorno?¿Qúe puedes hacer para yudar? ¿Quieres asegurarte de que esos lugares en plena naturaleza continuarán allí por mucho tiempo?

Conocer tu entorno natural más cercano significa que a menudo está en la posición perfecta para marcar la diferencia. Lo primero que debe hacer es informar a su socio nacional de BirdLife, por ejemplo en España A SEO/BirdLife, sobre la amenaza en ese lugar concreto. También contamos con numerosos Grupos Locales que intervienen de una forma más directa, y puedes colaborar y formar parte de ellos. 
De lo contrario, puede comenzar siendo socio de BirdLife, para que con tu ayuda y contribución pueda ayudarlo o ponerlo en contacto con otras personas u organizaciones locales que puedan hacerlo.
Informe a su periódico local o estación de radio sobre lo que está sucediendo. Pon una publicación en tu muro de Facebook y pide a tus amigos que reenvíen este mensaje. Muchas otras personas pueden preocuparse por el sitio tanto como usted, y estarán encantados de participar una vez que hayan escuchado las noticias.
Su autoridad local estará involucrada en decidir si el cambio en su sitio puede continuar, así que hágales saber por qué cree que el lugar debería estar protegido.
Si la amenaza proviene de arrojar basura o cazar y atrapar, puede ser ilegal, así que dígaselo a la autoridad local o a la policía, y podrán detenerlo.
 
People power can save Nature’s special places
In recent years, ordinary people have been able to save many places that are important for birds and other wildlife from harmful developments.
The Rospuda Valley in north-eastern Poland is one of Europe’s last remaining wildernesses. An area of ancient peat bogs, wetlands and primeval forest, it is an important refuge for species such as lynx, wolf and beaver, White-tailed Eagle, Common Crane and Corncrake.
In 1996, developers announced plans to build a bypass around the town of Augustów in north-eastern Poland, that would pass directly through the Rospuda Valley. 
The proposal caused a public outcry, and galvanized a coalition of local environmental campaigners and organisations, key amongst them the Polish Society for the Protection of the Birds (OTOP/BirdLife in Poland). They launched a vigorous campaign to protect Rospuda, and before long, thousands of people across Poland were wearing green ribbons to show their support.
OTOP and the coalition kept up the pressure on the government. Long years of campaigning and legal argument followed, until in 2009, the government announced that the road would not be built through Rospuda Valley -or nearby Biebrza Marshes, Augustów Primeval Forest and Knyszyn Primeval Forest.
 
In Malta, volunteers are a crucial part of efforts to halt the illegal hunting of migratory birds. Each year, BirdLife Malta runs two conservation camps—Spring Watch Camp in April, and Raptor Camp in September.
Volunteers come from numerous countries including the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Denmark and Finland to help monitor bird migration and act as a deterrent to illegal hunting by reporting illegal activities to the police.

The wetlands around Wakkerstroom in South Africa are important for hundreds of species of birds, including rare cranes and migratory birds of prey. The area is also the source of major river systems in southern Africa.
In 2008, the area was threatened by a plan for open cast coal mining. The BirdLife Partner in South Africa, with its network of local bird clubs, formed a group of NGOs which worked tirelessly to raise public awareness, and to lobby the judicial system and the government.
In 2010, the coal company not only withdrew their proposal, but paid the NGO group for their expenses and time. Later in the year, the area under threat became the first Protected Environment in South Africa,  the Kwamand-langampisi Protected Environment.
