22 August 2012 - The
UNEP/AEWA and the UNEP/CMS Secretariats learned with deep
regret and sadness of the sudden death of Dr. Martin Schneider-Jacoby,
who has worked as a project leader for the foundation EuroNatur since its foundation in 1987.
International bird conservation
and in particular waterbird conservation was very close
to his heart and he was particularly
committed to nature conservation in the Balkans. He was
also one of the driving forces behind the Adriatic
Flyway Conference, which took place in Ulcinj, Montenegro in April
2009 and the main outcome of which was the Ulcinj Declaration,
underlining the importance of the Bojana-Buna-Delta and
the need for its protection. This is an area of significant
ecological value, in particular for birds that breed, migrate
and winter in this region.
AEWA and CMS have a lot
to be thankful for, having profited from Dr. Schneider-Jacoby’s
dedication and his love for migratory birds and nature
in general over the years.
We would like to express our deepest gratitude for his
commitment and to extend our heartfelt condolences to
his family and friends.
