Landbird Conservation Director Trevor Lloyd-Evans and Lead Instructor Evan Dalton are headed to Israel, not only to participate in the Champions of the Flyway 2019, but also to present at the third International Bird Observatory Conference to be held in Eilat, Israel. Trevor and Evan will both be giving talks on Manomet’s 50 years of data and our educational work.
On March 28th – April 1st, 2019, the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI) and the International Birding and Research Center Eilat (IBRCE) will host the 3rd International Bird Observatory Conference (IBOC). The SPNI is the Israeli BirdLife partner and runs a network of bird observatories across Israel. All the bird observatories of Israel, urban or in natural sites, run important habitat maintenance, intensive monitoring, research, nature conservation acts, environmental education and community programs, and eco-tourism. Located on the northern tip of Eilat, the IBRCE’s strategic geographic placement puts it within the Eurasian-African flyway of millions of migrating birds each spring and fall.
