The Last Tweet

Date Released: Tuesday, October 24, 2017

Four birds, four deaths. These is the focus of #TheLastTweet, a campaign by the Bern Convention to raise awareness about the millions of birds that are killed illegally each year in Europe.

This kind of wildlife crime has become one of the largest transnational organised illicit activities, alongside trafficking in drugs, arms, and human beings. This profitable, well set up, environmental crime has devastating effects on birds and on biodiversity as a whole. Killed or trapped in huge numbers, some species are being driven to extinction.
