Living in Harmony with Migratory Birds

Banyumas, a regency in Central Java Province, Indonesia, is a destination for hundreds of migratory birds every year. They use areas of forest  in Banyumas for roosting while they migrate to tropical areas. Unfortunately, the conservation of migratory birds has to compete for attention with other issues.

WMBD is a strategic opoprtunity for raising awareness of the importance of saving forests as the home of thousands of wild animals, including migratory birds.

Since 2011, Biodiversity Society has conducted WMBD celebrations to campaign for the protection of migratory birds and their roosting habitat in Banyumas. WMBD has been on the annual conservation agenda to promote conservation issues to students, nature lovers, and the wider public as well.
