World Migratory Bird Day 2022 in Indonesia

HIMPUS (Poultry Lovers Student Association) is an organization of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Syiah Kuala University, which is engaged in the development and observation of birds in Aceh, Indonesia. HIMPUS has focused on protecting migratory birds in Indonesia since 2014 by carrying out various public awareness efforts.

This year HIMPUS will plan to again hold World Migratory Bird Day celebrations in Indonesia with the aim of increasing public awareness of the welfare of migratory birds with several activities such as guest lectures, art competitions, monitoring and awareness materials.


1. Guest lecture session of  WMBD

This activity was carried out to provide knowledge of migratory birds, discuss ways to protect migratory birds in Indonesia, environmental issues on the population and habitat of migratory birds, and the need for conservation of migratory birds. In addition, this study focuses on light pollution which has an impact on migratory birds.

This online activity will be held on 15 May 2022. HIMPUS will invite experienced and competent speakers in the field of environmental conservation and migratory birds in Indonesia. HIMPUS will also invite local organizations, environmentalists, students, and the general public as participants in this activity.
