A huge variety of events
are being organised around the world to mark this year’s
WMBD theme “Barriers to migration”,
which aims to raise awareness on the many man-made barriers
migratory birds face along their journeys.
World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD)
is an annual event to help raise awareness for the need
to conserve migratory birds around the world. On the second
weekend each May, people around the world take action
and organise public events such as bird festivals, education
programmes and birdwatching excursions to celebrate WMBD.
To learn more about World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) and
this year’s theme please visit the WMBD website
Here, you will also find information on this year’s
WMBD drawing competition for children up to the age of
16 years, whereby children can learn more about the many
man-made threats to migratory birds and express their
thoughts and ideas as to how man-made structures can disturb
bird migration and how this can be avoided.
