World Migratory Bird Day

World Migratory Bird Day, a global awareness-raising campaign, was initiated in 2006, highlights the need for the protection of migratory birds and their habitats.

On the second weekend each May, people around the world take action and organize public events such as bird festivals, education programs and birdwatching excursions to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day and to help raise awareness around a specific theme.
