Champions of the Flyaways


The “Champions of the Flyway” is a major international fund-raising bird race based on the concept of the American Big Day. Competing teams from around the world will try to log as many species as possible in a 24 hour period in one of the world’s finest migration destinations, Eilat.

The goal is to raise money for a conservation cause, part of the Birdlife International “Flyways” program. Competing teams will represent various organisations from around the world including companies, global birding media and of course international BirdLife Partner organisations. The event will generate significant regional and global media coverage and will be accompanied by a major marketing and communications campaign.
As part of the package, participating teams will benefit from their own tailored marketing campaign in global media channels valued at several times more than the package costs.
