“World Migratory Bird Day” was celebrated for the first time on October 13 with the slogan “Uniting our voices for bird conservation”. The celebration took place in Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens, Jalisco, Mexico.
The activities were free and open to the public and included treks for bird watching and environmental interpretation, a drawing contest for children, plus educational talks about the importance of the birds to the ecosystems and our own health, among many other surprises.
According to the organizers, this celebration was part of a global effort that includes 626 events in 200 cities across 73 countries, all reporting on the observation of more than 5,000 species of birds worldwide.
Let’s unite and celebrate the marvelous diversity of birds and ecosystems during this exceptional day dedicated to the conservation of birds in all of Mexico!
