The Research Centre on Bird Migration (CISCA) opened in 2002 on the Island of Ponza, situated in the Tyrrhenian sea on the west coast of Italy. The Center conducts research in collaboration with several Universities from across Europe. Bird ringing activities are conducted according to scientific research methods with reference to ecophysiology and phenology of bird migration. The data are used for monitoring the status of and trends in European migrating bird populations and to evaluate the impact of climate change on bird migration.
The Research Center promotes key messages around nature conservation and offers training activities for visiting primary and secondary school children, as well as for university students from several countries. The lectures include a practical demonstration of bird ringing activity and theoretical lectures concerning the importance of conservation and research. More information on this webpage.
