The first internationally coordinated waterbird count was organised in January 1967. Now entering its 50th year, the International Waterbird Census (IWC) has become a vital source of information for the conservation and management of wetlands and waterbirds around the world. This is the story of one of the world’s most important and valuable monitoring programmes.
Everybody is connected to nature, everybody can be involved in this campaign! On this webpage you can find material on joining and promoting the IWC50 campaign: “Let’s make it count”.
