BirdLife at work: conserving the world’s birds
As one in eight of the world’s more than 10,000 bird species are threatened with extinction, BirdLife certainly has its work cut out! BirdLife, with its global partnership of 100 bird conservation organisations, is therefore working hard to address the threats to the planet’s birds and their habitats. Mark Anderson, BirdLife South Africa’s CEO, will talk about how BirdLife goes about its work and he will highlight some of the challenges and some of the successes.
