The Palestine Sundbirders are back! You better watch your score 😉
Even better, we are a team of four this year, supported by the new Palestinian nature parks and nature conservation website www.mahmiyat.ps and the Hanns Seidel Foundation.
Noam and Saed participated in the Champions of the Flyway together in 2014 and you might remember that the Palestinian team had the highest score that year. This year we are a team of two birdwatchers (Noam and Saed), one bird photographer (Sultan) who will spot just everything there is to spot and one nature tour guide (Khaled) whose specialty is to find wildlife for tourists. So we are prepared to take the title back!
Watching and photographing birds is one of the fun things we like to do in our free time and this is also what brings us together and made us meet in the first place. We envy the freedom of birds a bit, crossing countries with no permits, visas or passports necessary. For us this is so much more difficult but it will not stop us to do what we love.
All of us are in love with nature and bird conservation; hence, we want to contribute to BirdLife Turkey’s efforts to protect birds from illegal killing. However, we need your help to raise as much money as possible for this good cause. So please support our team and we do our best to support bird conservation in any country, as these birds belong to all of us or better to say, all these countries where they migrate through belong to them. Birds do not know borders and we do not know borders when it comes to their protection.
