Besides our passion for birds, conservation and nature in general, we snowfinches also have their employer – past or present – in common. But the “Vogelwarte Sempach” (Swiss Ornithological Institute) is not just an employer like any other. It represents and fights for what we love and stand for: birds, their habitats, everything related to them. In one word: nature. We all work on disseminating information on birds and their conservation, to arouse interest and joy but also raise awareness about problems birds encounter.
This is why the “Leica Sempach Snowfinches” are participating to Champions of the Flyways. To do so, we can count on the generous support of Leica Switzerland as our sponsor and for fundraising. We are some very fortunate snowfinches!
The brownish and the colourful, the big and the small, the rare and the common, the sedentary and the migratory: our team is dedicated to all the birds! Birds know no boundaries. They need space, food and protection everywhere they are, everywhere they go, in every country, and all along their amazing journeys.
Birds need care and protection on their breeding grounds, but it not enough for the migrants that encounter deadly threats on their journey. We need this cruel, useless killing to stop, and that sooner than later!! Bird slaughter around the Mediterranean isn’t solely – and badly enough – an animal welfare issue, it has severe implications for species, like the Quail for example, and ecological consequences.
We “Leica Sempach Snowfinches” will give our best to help! And we need your help spreading the message and collecting funds for our friends from Birdlife Serbia and BirdLife Croatia. Let’s raise some money together to support the migrant bird conservation in Croatia and Serbia!!
