About World Migratory Bird Day

World Migratory Bird Day celebrates Year of the Bird and the actions you can take to help birds, 365 days of the year. In 2018, the theme is conservation, and we celebrate the ways we can help to protect birds every day of the year through actions, stories, and art.

After 25 years, International Migratory Bird Day becomes World Migratory Bird Day, joining with partners across the globe to unify our voices for bird conservation. this year, Nature Canada is pleased to partner with Environment for the Americas on World Migratory Bird Day! For more information, please visit, and for more information specific to the World Migratory Bird Day, click here!
