Thu, 17/05/2012
Each year around the world, people come together to celebrate World Migratory Bird Day to raise awareness on the protection of migratory birds. This year’s 2012 theme for World Migratory Bird Day is “Migratory birds and people- together through time”. Migratory birds and people are inseparably connected in many different ways but human activities like excessive land use, unsustainable hunting, poor agricultural practices, industrial pollution and many other activities now gravely threaten migratory birds around the world. WMBD strives towards preserving the cultural ties people have with migratory birds and the vital economic and environmental benefits they sustain.
