|When:||Saturday, 10/05/08 - Sunday, 11/05/08 All Day|
|Description:||Building upon the two very successful campaigns in 2006 and 2007, preparations for WMBD 2008 are now underway! Both the theme and the timing of WMBD 2008 coincide with the upcoming 9th Conference of the Parties of the Convention on Biological Biodiversity (CBD) to be held in Bonn, Germany next year. In this context the organisers hope to use WMBD to help spread the idea of migratory birds as messengers for the conservation of biodiversity worldwide.
We encourage national authorities, NGOs, clubs and societies, universities, schools and individuals worldwide to celebrate WMBD 2008 by organizing awareness-raising programs, festivals or other related events on the weekend of 10 -11 May 2008.
