The “Nederlandse Bond van Vogelliefhebbers” (NBvV) was established in 1933. Since then four times a Mondial was organized by this organization in the Netherlands, in behave of the Confédération Ornithologique Mondial. These events took place in Rotterdam in 1965 and 1973, but also in Breda in 1979 and 1993.
The Mondial was also organized on several occasions by the “Algemene Nederlandse Bond van Vogelhouders” (ANBvV). These Mondials were held in different places and well in 1953 (Utrecht), 1958 (Helmond) and also in 1985, 1998 and 2006 (Zutphen). Unfortunately the Mondial 2006 had to be cancelled because of bird influenza. In 2015 the last Dutch COM Mondial, organized by the ANBvV, was held in Rosmalen. The Mondials organized by these two organizations were a great success.
In meantime a fusion between both organizations is a fact. We have gone further as one organization named the “Nederlandse Bond van Vogelliefhebbers”. On our path we are going to use each of our own experiences from the past and each other’s strengths. This is what we also implemented in the Mondial 2019. We hope to present a nice Mondial to all participants and visitors from different countries. We are proud to receive You and al the birds.
