Saturday May 14th is World Migratory Bird Day! The overall mission of World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is to raise awareness of migratory birds and issues related to their conservation. The campaign highlights the importance of international cooperation and encourages national and local action to protect migratory birds. The 2022 campaign theme, Light Pollution, is designed to increase awareness about the negative effects light pollution has on migrating birds, their behavior and activity levels. The campaign will be used to highlight actions that can be taken by a wider range of actors including individuals to reduce light pollution. The easiest way for you to reduce light pollution is to turn off or dim your outdoor lights in the evenings- start tonight!!
