AEN helped secure funding to support the following project in 2017:

Project Title: Impact of Plastic Waste on Birds

Partner Organization: Time Land Scientific Study Fund. The main goals and objectives of Time Land Fund are to stimulate the sustainable green development of the communities in the Getik river valley, through the implementation of innovative scientific, environmental and educational projects. 

Project Description: The two primary objectives of the proposed project are to 1) examine the impact of plastics on the nests of various bird species in selected communities and 2) increase awareness of the impacts of plastic waste on the environment and biodiversity in three target communities. Time Land Fund is currently conducting field surveys and organizing workshops to raise awareness about plastic litter.
