World Fish Migration Day 2022: Break free

Dates: 21 May 2022

On this day, World Fish Migration Foundation brings together a global movement of people and organisations working with migrating fish species and free-flowing rivers. This year the theme is Brake Free, celebrating the removal of river barriers and the recovery of migratory fish populations. At FishSec, we are hoping that many events will highlight the need to protect European eel - one of the world's most amazing migratory fish species - and its habitats.

Endangered Species Day 2022

Location: Global

Dates: 20 May 2022

This global day of action and celebration of endangered species was created by David Robinson and the Endangered Species Coalition in 2006. On Endangered Species Day, organisations, groups and individuals hold special events to remind us of how fragile the existence of some animals, plants and insects is, and why it is important to protect them. Endangered Species Day reminds us that many species on our planet are at risk of going extinct. According to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, more than 40,000 species are threatened with extinction, among them 37 % of sharks and rays, European eel and other eel species, many crustaceans and corals. Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), which also occurs in the Baltic Sea, is classed as Vulnerable. If you are holding an event, use the hashtag #endangeredspeciesday on social media.
