Sudan: Efforts to protect migrating birds' haven

24 April 2014 Last updated at 16:34 BST

The Al-Magran nature reserve in Khartoum has been a haven for migrating birds since 1945 - but many of the species found there are endangered because of hunting, environmental damage and farming.

Now environmental campaigners in Sudan are hoping that promoting the country as a tourist destination for bird watchers could boost revenue, which could then be used to protect nesting sites and rare birds from extinction.

Hadya Alalawi reports.
