World Migratory Bird Day 2013 Trailer Launched


The World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) 2013 campaign team is excited to announce the release of the campaign trailer! The two-minute animated video is inspired by this year’s World Migratory Bird Day theme “Networking for migratory birds” ( The trailer aims to show the importance of ecological networks for the survival of migratory birds as well as to encourage the international community - governments, conservation organizations and dedicated individuals alike – to work together to conserve migratory birds around the world.


Migratory birds travel huge distances on their annual journeys, sometimes even tens of thousands of kilometers. In order to successfully complete their migration, birds rely on intact networks of sites, for resting, feeding, breeding and wintering. Due to human activities, large numbers of important sites have already been damaged or lost entirely, which can have detrimental impacts on entire migratory bird populations.


Watch the 2013 World Migratory Bird Day Trailer!


The video can be viewed online on the WMBD website in English as well as versions with French and Spanish subtitles.


The World Migratory Bird Day Team would like to thank everyone involved in the production of this trailer, in particular Mr. Dirk Räppold ( who dedicated his valuable time and creativity to developing the trailer. We would also like to acknowledge the contribution of our speaker Ms. Eleanor Waters, as well as Mr. Patrik Årberg for his recordings of crane sounds.
