January 5, 2016 02:58

The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel's annual Champions of the Flyway bird watching competition was named among the 50 most important stories and events about birds for 2015, by the Massachusetts-based Bird Watching magazine.

The 24-hour competition, in which teams from all over the world gather near Eilat each spring to spot as many bird species as possible, was selected to the list for its success in raising more than $50,000 for BirdLife Cyprus, to fight illegal killing on the island. This year’s competition will be held on March 29.
