Migratory Species and Climate Change

The unique way of life of migratory animals, be it birds, marine or terrestrial mammals, fish, marine turtles, or insects, illustrates like no other phenomenon the connectivity of ecosystems across the globe. While Climate Change has very different faces in different regions, these animals need to adjust their migration patterns accordingly if they are to survive. Migratory species are especially at risk due to Climate Change because they require separate breeding, wintering, and migration habitats of high quality and in suitable locations. Often, one or more of these habitats could be at risk because of changing temperature ranges, hydrological patterns and habitat loss due to increasing human pressures.

Wildlife Watching and Tourism

Wildlife watching activities play a significant and growing part in the tourism industry, and create direct and indirect economic benefits for many countries and communities – especially amongst developing countries. Wildlife watching appeals to a much wider range of people than the more specialist forms of eco-tourism, and opportunities to participate in wildlife watching are increasingly a factor in tourists’ holiday choices.

A Review of Migratory Bird Flyways and Priorities for Management - TS No. 27

CMS Technical Series Publication No. 27

The phenomenon of bird migration has been a source of wonder for man since time immemorial. However, the biological integrity of this intricate seasonal journey, which covers a network of several biomes across different frontiers and continents, is being compromised due to a plethora of threats and challenges, and consequently the vulnerability of migrat ory birds is increasing worldwide. A Review of Migratory Bird Flyways and Priorities for Management is an exhaustive work which addresses the issue of migratory bird conservation with a comprehensive approach touching on core thematic areas.

a. To review existing administrative/management instruments for migratory bird flyways globally (Review 1, presented here as Part 1);

b. To review scientific/technical knowledge of migratory bird flyways and conservation priorities, and identify major gaps (Review 2, now Part 2); and

c. To propose policy options for flyway conservation and management to feed into the Intersessional Process regarding the Future Shape of CMS (Review 3, now Part 3).
