WHAT CAN WE DO FOR THE BIRDS?

SVERRE LUNDEMO (WWF), PRESENTER

This lecture is held as an introduction to the concert with Aaron Carpenè.


Birds are amazing creatures that almost everyone can relate to – they are present virtually everywhere in the world, in every possible habitat. There are nearly 10 000 bird species in the world, and they come in a myriad of shapes, colours, sizes and adaptations. But just like other parts of nature, birds are under pressure from humans, and almost a quarter of all species are listed on the global Red List of Threatened Species. Which threats do they face, what needs to be done and what can be done to improve the situation for our birds?
