Beijing Swifts in Chinese Media

One of the intended consequences of the Beijing Swift Project was to further raise awareness of nature in general and Swifts in particular in China.

In the February 2016 edition of the Chinese outdoor magazine "Forest and Humankind", Beijing Swifts make it onto the front cover and are the main story!

Front cover
The article is about the Swift's lifestyle with the migration as part of the story.

We include scans of the front page, with an accomplished painting of Swifts, and a rather nice map highlighting all of the countries visited by Swifts on their epic journey from Beijing to southwest Africa.
