Message from Dr. Ahmed Djoghlaf, Executive Secretary of the Convention on Biological Diversity, on the Occasion of the Launch of World Migratory Bird Day, 9 April 2006

Their departure in autumn closes another chapter in our lives; yet, we innately trust them to return the following year.

They remind us that we all live in one world, in which the different parts, whether physically connected or not, are inextricably linked.
