Migratory species come in all shapes and sizes. They play essential roles in ecosystems worldwide. But their diverse habitats are threatened by land degradation and desertification. In contribution to this year’s World Migratory Bird Day (11-12 May), the UNCCD published a factsheet on migratory species and desertification in cooperation with the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS).
