Bird ringing is when experienced ringers attach a small, individually numbered metal or plastic ring to the leg or wing of a wild bird to enable individual identification. Ringing aims to study the life cycle of the birds (population viability, mortality, age, and the rate of nesting and survival of specific target species), their habits, population dynamics and migration. Ringing must only be done if a permit has been granted by the relevant governmental institution. To find out and analyse the above, data researchers use the individually numbered metal rings to identify individuals if they are recaptured.
Sabuko has been implementing short-term bird ringing camps at different locations throughout Georgia, with the hope that this process will be on a larger scale in the future, and contribute to the conservation of local and migrating bird populations.
