Global Shorebird Counting

Between 2-6 september 2016 the annual global shorebirds count is taking place.
This initiative, revolving around the World Shorebirds Day, is one we like to empower, as we think the conservation of all birds is important, not only raptors.

The youth exchange with youngsters from Belgium, Armenia and Georgia will put the importance of the Chorokhi Delta for shorebirds in the picture, with a public event on the 5th of september. Feel free to join them!

If you can't make it there, you can also follow them online. They will share their sightings on and on A report of their endeavors will appear here as well.

But even better, we encourage everyone in Batumi and Georgia to go out, and count in an area that holds shorebirds nearby!
