World Migratory Birds Day and International Day for Biological Diversity Celebration

On 21 May 2016 at the University of Rwanda- Huye Campus, there was a joint celebration of World Migratory Birds Day and the International Day for Biological Diversity (Biodiversity).  The themes of these two events complement each other and lead to sustainable biodiversity conservation and livelihoods.  The goals are to stop illegal killing, taking, and trade of migratory birds that contribute to biodiversity and livelihoods.
