World Migratory Bird Day in
Days to go:
World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is a global event dedicated to the conservation and celebration of migratory birds and their incredible journeys across continents. This annual observance brings people together from around the world to appreciate and learn about these fascinating birds, while raising awareness about the urgent need for their protection. Through various activities, events, and educational initiatives, WMBD aspires to inspire people to take action to conserve migratory birds and their habitats for the benefit of future generations.
Established in 2006, this important observance has grown leaps and bounds, encompassing more than 140 countries each year. The event is organized by the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) and the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (AEWA) – two international wildlife treaties administered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Various organizations, including BirdLife International, Wetlands International, and the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation, collaborate to promote and support the event. WMBD highlights the significance of migratory birds as indicators of global environmental health and promotes a better understanding of the ecological importance of conserving their habitats.
In Canada, participants in World Migratory Bird Day can join others in a multitude of events, such as birdwatching excursions, guided nature walks, educational workshops, and art exhibitions. Mark your calendars as this special day is celebrated on the second Saturday of May in North and South America, the Caribbean, and Greenland, and on the second weekend of October in the rest of the world. Join the global community in honoring and protecting these remarkable creatures as they traverse the skies of our shared planet.
