Migratory Birds for People Programme (MBP)
Staatsbosbeheer, Wetlands International, Wetland Link International and Länsstyrelserna initiated the Migratory Birds for People programme in 2009, in order to connect a network of wetland visitor centres along the East Atlantic Flyway. The purpose of the network is the exchange of knowledge and experience between the participating centres and thus to enhance communication with the public about the importance of wetland sites along the East Atlantic Flyway. There are currently 26 participating visitor centres in the network.
A short film has been developed by Katja Fedrowitz with the MBP team, for use at wetland centres along the East Atlantic Flyway. It explains the activities of the MBP network.
