2018 World Migratory Bird Day at Armand Bayou NC

Environment for the Americas coordinates WMBD in the Americas to increase awareness and motivate conservation of the migratory birds we share across borders. It is a celebration of one of the most important and spectacular events in the life of a migratory bird -its journey between breeding and non-breeding grounds. The program was created by Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center to focus public attention on the need for action to conserve birds and their habitats.

World Migratory Bird Day 2018 "Unifying our Voices for Bird Conservation"

     We, UKM HIMPUS - student representation of Veterinary Faculty of Syiah Kuala University, will carry out our second organized event to spread the word about WMBD. In 2015, UKM HIMPUS participated in a WMBD event organized by Aceh Birder. In 2016 - 2017 UKM HIMPUS continued WMBD celebrations as an organizer. So, this year we would like to continue our engagement in WMBD celebrations.
