World Migratory Bird Day – 13 May 2023 – Poster

Migratory Bird Day is an annual global campaign to raise awareness about migratory birds, the need for their conservation, and the importance of the preservation of their habitat.

This year the theme focuses on “Water: Sustaining Bird Life”. Water is considered as a central part of life on our planet. The vast majority of migratory birds rely on aquatic ecosystems during their life cycles. They sustain their long journeys through inland and coastal wetlands, rivers, lakes, marshes, and ponds. But in recent years aquatic ecosystems are becoming increasingly threatened around the world and so are the migratory birds that depend on them.
