The need for international funding

So far, only a small fraction of the information gathered from ringing birds is analysed and published. The vast data set of birds ringed and recovered all over the world allows analyses which had not even been imagined by front-line researchers at the time when the birds had been ringed. Today, burning questions in modern biology and in the conser-vation and management of birds can be tackled with this unique resource of data.
EURING will seek funding for more in-depth analyses, for a continent-wide overview of bird migration, and for transferring this vital information to the environmental commu-nity, policy makers and the general public.
