National Birds Day 2024: National Bird Day is celebrated to raise awareness about the various bird species that inhabit our ecosystem. Humans are usually amazed when they encounter any birds, particularly the environmentalists, who spend hours in the woods or on seabeds to witness them. National Bird Day 2024 marks this fascination by motivating people to explore more about birds and to take action to protect them, especially endangered birds.
This programme is initiated by the Avian Welfare Coalition, which raises awareness of birds captured or grabbed for financial gain or entertainment. The Avian Welfare Coalition's National Bird Day campaign is observed on January 5 every year. The major aims of the awareness are to ease bird suffering by raising awareness of the devastating wild bird trade, the realities of brutal bird breeding mills, and modes to improve the bird's lives in captivity. People have their ways of celebrating this day; many visit their local parks or forests, and others feed birds.
