Dear migratory fish friends,

We are reaching out to you due to the unusual circumstances resulting from COVID-19. We truly hope this email finds you well.

In light of the difficult situation facing us all at the moment, the World Fish Migration Day Team has decided to postpone the big official celebration from 16 May 2020 to 24 October 2020. This is our chance to go with the flow and an opportunity to get creative!  In consideration of the uncertainty of this situation, we encourage our community to either plan digital or physical events to celebrate together on October 24th. We emphasize that safety is first and we advise you to follow the COVID-19 safety regulations of your national government.

We understand that this last-minute change may not work for everybody, as many people have been preparing events for months. Given this, we will be especially flexible with the timing of your activities and celebrations. We understand that you may need to host your event before October (whether due to weather conditions, budget deadlines, COVID-19 restrictions, etc.). This is why we encourage everyone to host their event at their convenience. Please adapt or upload your event on our website when possible!

Nevertheless, we don’t want to forget about May 16th just yet!  You may still host a digital event around May 16th if you would like. Our team would also like to invite you to a special webinar series we are hosting from 11 May to 15 May, closing with a special exciting action on 16 May. We will send out announcements and invites for these webinars at the beginning of April, since we are now developing our first ideas.

Keep an eye out in mid-April for the program on our website or in your inbox.

You will hear from us soon with updates! ? Let’s keep the positivity flowing!

In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have or visit our FAQ site.
