Innovations for migratory bird monitoring along the East Atlantic Flyway – FLYWAY

The two-year project (2022-2024) will explore a number of different technologies that, in the future, may support and be used in conjunction with the physical bird monitoring that is currently conducted by 14,000 dedicated volunteers. The aim of the project is to present and deliver a Roadmap for the future introduction of technologies that will help improve the monitoring of bird numbers and their habitat which is important for understanding climate change impacts.

The European Commission’s Directorate General for Structural Reform Support (DG REFORM), following the request of The Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality (LNV) and the German and Danish counterparts of The Trilateral Wadden Sea Cooperation, awarded the project to the Coastal & Marine Union (EUCC) and experts from Sovon Dutch Centre for Field Ornithology/Wadden Sea Flyway Initiative (Sovon/WSFI) and EUCC – The Coastal Union Germany (EUCC-D).




Project work has been ongoing since November 2022, results of the project work are continuously updated on this page.
