Every year on International Biodiversity we count garden birds all over Georgia.
By making people aware about the birds around us, we want to raise awareness of the value of biodiversity and its importance for a livable future. By deepening the knowledge of school children on widespread garden birds the campaign also strives to strengthen the understanding for the close linkage between the quality of nature and the well-being of people, as the existence and frequency of common birds is a good indicator to assess the state and the quality of the environment we live in.
The environmental educational campaign “Hour of Garden Birds ” was implemented by the Search Results Ministry of Environment Protection and Agriculture of Georgia with the support of GIZ Biodiversity Programme and CIM and is now continued by SABUKO.
On 22nd of May educators throughout the whole country turn their classes into conservation scientists, helping us track the ups and downs of birds across the country.
