As a team, we first met each other thanks to youth birding program of the Society of Protection of Nature in Israel. From the beginning, it was clear that we were going to compete together as a team. We decided to be in the same group because we have good friendship and connection between us and we like birding together; furthermore, we all care about the birds and mostly the nature in Israel, and we will do everything we can to protect it.
We know that participating in COTF is one of the best ways we can do that, and we also want to inspire other kids and youth and to show them we are as good as adults, and most importantly to make people understand how important is to protect our birds!
As a team, we have some key principles. The most important ones are:
1. To do our birding without disturbing the nature and its birds and animals.
2. To be as honest as possible: without any shortcuts.
Our great teamwork proved it self when we won last year the ‘Israeli Guardians of the
Flyway’ – the prize for the team who raised the highest amount of money among the Israeli
teams. Furthermore, we are glad to say that we are the first youth team who ever won a trophy in COTF history!
Please donate to our team and help us to help the BIRDS – you won’t regret it!!
