The protection of bird habitats is one of the most important bird conservation in our times. If the bird habitats disappear or diminish the bird species will be affected and become extinct or their population will decline significantly.
Fuglavernd BirdLife Iceland has created a story map about 37 seabird colonies in Iceland because habitat conservation is one of the pillars in our strategy. Fuglavernd BirdLife Iceland also has the role to register IBA’s on behalf of BirdLife International and currently there are 99 IBAs listed in Iceland. The 37 seabird colonies are all Important Bird Areas Internationally due to the large number of seabirds depending on them.
The goal of the story map is to educate and create general knowledge as well as a teachers source of material for all school levels. The map is compiled with beautiful photographs and based on data for your best scientist.
