World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD)

On the second Saturday in May and October, 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, more than 2,500 events have been registered in 140 different countries and territories stimulating people and organizations to work together to conserve migratory birds worldwide.
