Champions of the Flyway is back! We are very excited to team up with our partners at Nature Tanzania to help combat the illegal killing of White Storks and other migrants on their perilous journeys to and from Africa.
Following a successful fundraising campaign, we will once again assemble in Eilat in late March 2024 to race for the Champions of the Flyway awards. The race will take place on 2nd April 2024 with the Closing and Awards Ceremonies the following morning.
We’re very excited to be welcoming many new teams and followers and are grateful for the continuing (and growing) support of our sponsors – onwards and upwards for the birds!
The combined power of many like-minded people coming together at the heart of the Flyway is immense and creates a campaign much more than the sum of its parts…. and it’s a unique, inspiring week you’ll never forget!
Right now, birding teams from all over the world are planning and strategising in the hope of winning one the following coveted titles:
- Champions of the Flyway: FOUR CATEGORIES TO CHOOSE FROM THIS YEAR!
Green Champions – race on foot, bike or other non-motorised method
Sanctuary Champions – race purely in the IBRCE (International Bird Research Center Eilat) area
Big Field Champions – the traditional race, but on our new, much smaller ‘playing field’
Digiscoping / photography Champions – how many species can you ‘capture’ on race day?
- Guardians of the Flyway: Awarded to the team that generates the most funding for this year’s conservation action project
- Knights of the Flyway: Awarded to the team which does the most to promote the cause, help others before, during and after the event, and to go above and beyond for the cause generally!
