World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is a biannual awareness-raising campaign highlighting the need for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. It has a global outreach and is an effective tool to help raise awareness of the threats faced by migratory birds, their ecological importance, and the need for international cooperation to conserve them. Every year, on the second Saturday in May and October, people around the world organize public events such as bird festivals, education programmes, exhibitions and bird-watching excursions to celebrate WMBD.
