Instagram Campaign 2020

Time to get your bird pictures out for the #BirdsConnectUs Instagram Campaign!

Birds are incredible! They are everywhere – in national parks, along seashores and lakes and rivers, but also in  farmlands, along highways, and in the middle of major cities! They are global ambassadors, reminding us of our own connection to the planet, the environment, wildlife and each other.

The global lockdown and the continuing social distancing measures, triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, have led to a new sense of global awareness and appreciation for conserving and restoring the natural world. People across the planet have begun to see and hear the birds again. This re-discovery of birds in the environment around us is a phenomenon worth celebrating and taking action to help them on their way wherever they are! In the spirit of this year's World Migratory Bird Day theme: "Birds Connect Our World", focused on the importance of conserving and restoring the ecological connectivity and integrity of ecosystems, we would like you to help share your own experiences and show how migratory birds connect the world. 

Raise Awareness and Take Action by Sharing Your Best Bird Photos & Moments in Nature!
