Article summary

Since 1995, the “Cigognes sans Frontières” program has proposed an educational program for schoolsn centred on the Black Stork migration? Each day, satellite data were sent to teachers and their students via our Internet site (www.explorado.org/solon). Teachers could teach different lessons like geography, mathematics, foreign cultures, etc. with the Black Stork and its migration as a link. Several schools exchagned mails with african schools located near the wintering grounds of european storks. A twinning between those school was initiated. The Idée and C.R.I.E. networks in Belgium prepared educational booklets and activities in schools. A camera was also placed facing a nest in 1998. These pictures were transmitted live on Internet. During winter 1999, a week called “NetDays” was organized by the association Idée and Solon and supported by the european community. A team from the “Cigognes sans Frontières” program went to Burkina Faso. This team welcomed, on a Black Stork wintering area, students from surrounding villages. They exchanged, with european students and the help of Internet, information about thier environment, the migration. Finally, during the 1999 fall migration, we followed the entire route from Belgium to Maghama (Mauritania) with two four-wheel drive cars and two microlight planes to realize a 52 minutes documentary film. Between September 20th and October 30th, daily radio broadcasting allowed a vast public to learn about the migration phenomenon.
