IBOC - Eilat 2019

IBOC 2019

3rd International Bird Observatory Conference

Eilat - ISRAEL


From March 28th – April 1st, 2019, the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI) and the International Birding and Research Center Eilat (IBRCE) will host the 3rd International Bird Observatory Conference (IBOC). SPNI is the Israeli BirdLife partner and runs a network of bird observatories across Israel. All of these observatories, whether urban or in less developed areas, run important habitat maintenance, intensive monitoring, research and nature conservation projects. They are involved in environmental education and community programs and provide eco-tourism options. The strategic geographic placement of the IBRCE park on the southern tip of Israel and the northern tip of the Sahara desert puts it within the Eurasian-African flyway of millions of migratory birds each spring and fall, attracting birdwatchers and general nature lovers from all over the world. Located on a former industrial waste site, the park is today one of the most unique and important bird areas in Israel.
