New! Go wild with IFAW's new lesson plans on migratory birds for Grades 4-6 (Ages 8-11)!

Let them Fly Safely Program

Lebanon is one of the largest gathering points of migratory birds in the world and a critical flyway - the path followed by birds on their journeys between their breeding and wintering grounds - of many bird species from Africa, Asia and Europe. Every year on this journey millions of birds are indiscriminately hunted, many of which are protected species.

The Let them Fly Safely student booklet provides everything educators need to introduce students to the biology and ecology of these wonderful and unique feathered animals (including migration and the mechanics of flight), the reasons why Lebanon is both a paradise and an imminent threat for migratory birds, and how they can help migratory birds fly safely.

Let them Fly Safely meets learning objectives in the sciences including biology and physics, social studies including geography, and language arts.

And don't forget to download the supplemental bird species cards for your students too!
