Author Martine Wauters, Swifts Without Frontiers

Swifts Without Frontiers aims to increase awareness, appreciation and protection of swift species throughout the world. The association wants to use the swift as an ambassador between the two hemispheres, enabling exchanges on both biodiversity as well as cultural matters. In this way the Swift becomes a means of promoting education and peace.


The first World Swift Day was celebrated in 39 countries with a wide variety of activities in order to spread knowledge about these fascinating birds and encourage their protection.
