World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD)

Each year on the second weekend in May, dedicated organizations and people around the world plan events to mark World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) celebrating migratory birds and raising awareness about the need for their conservation. Since World Migratory Bird Day was launched in Kenya in 2006, events have been held in over 130 countries stimulating people and organizations to work together to conserve migratory birds worldwide. The global campaign is jointly organized by the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals ( CMS) and the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement ( AEWA) and is being supported by a growing number of partners.
