World Migratory Bird Day

Conservation NGO News Wildlife

 

World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is an annual awareness-raising campaign highlighting the need for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. It has a global outreach and is an effective tool to help raise global awareness of the threats faced by migratory birds, their ecological importance, and the need for international cooperation to conserve them.

Countries or regions observe the peak of migrations at different times, but the main days for the international celebrations are on the Second Saturday in May and in October.
