Birds are one of the complementary creatures of nature and good indicators of the environmental situation of any country such as Europe. But because of some issues such as natural and man-made calamities, bird species such as the lapwing and the waders have slowly been disappearing. Some are hunted and shot down by hunters for their prize while other have simply died naturally due to no shelter and feeding grounds.
A lot of this can be attributed to the fact that birds are just seen as winged creatures that fly into the sky as if they own the aerial beauty of the world. But these animals also need a place to rest and due to some fortuitous events like dried up lowlands and valleys.
But conservation efforts as spearheaded by the Birdlife International of Europe have tried to save the remaining bird species under their wing and avoid pushing these bird species on the brink of extinction. With such efforts, the conservative manner of such foundations are deemed commendable since awareness for the existence of these birds is obviously overlooked and underestimated.
