May 9 – World Migratory Bird Day
What is World Migratory Bird Day?
Launched in 2006, World Migratory Bird Day is an annual awareness campaign that aims to inspire conservation of both migratory birds and their habitats around the world.
This campaign is organized within the framework of two international wildlife treaties administered by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) and the Agreement on the conservation of migratory waterbirds of Africa and Eurasia (AEWA).
World Migratory Bird Day is also supported by a growing number of partners and we acknowledge with deep gratitude the generous contribution made by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) without which the campaign would not be possible.
Join us and participate in World Migratory Bird Day on May 9 – 10, 2015. However you decide to contribute: be it by organizing educational programs, conferences, bird watching excursions, visits to production facilities! of bird-friendly energy, art exhibitions and other public events, each of these activities counts, and will enrich this worldwide celebration!
