Watch this explainer video on what the Convention on Migratory Species does and why it is important for the future of humanity to protect migratory wild animals. The video emphasizes that migratory animals provide vital services which satisfy people’s everyday needs – as a source of food and medicine, as pollinators and seed dispersers, and as a means of pest control. Protecting migratory species is therefore another way of contributing to the sustainable development goals.
