Hi Everyone,

Governments do not listen to emotional and unsubstantiated information. They require proof before they will act. So how do you get proof that birds migrate? You band them, acquire information, and then you go back to the government, plus the overseas governments where the birds spend time during their migrations. Only then does the fight begin for the conservation of birds through their flyways. And this is only the first step in acquiring knowledge about bird migration patterns. Many of the conservation plans in place now for birds came about as a result of banding information.
