World Migratory Bird Day 2023 will focus on water and its importance for migratory birds and identify key actions for protecting water resources and aquatic ecosystems.
World Migratory Bird Day is an awareness-raising campaign highlighting the need for the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats. It aims to draw attention to the threats faced by migratory birds, their ecological importance, and the need for international cooperation to conserve them.
The Day is celebrated biannually on the second Saturday in May and in October, reflecting the cyclical nature of bird migration with varying migration periods in the northern and southern hemispheres.
