So cute, isn’t it ? uh-oh ! not so cute if it is being caged. Don’t worry, I am NOT changing into a animal conservationist. So, I start by asking you this question : How many of you know that today is the World Sparrow Day ? How many of you really care ? You might be going “so what” ? If you keep a bowl of water in your balcony today , your day has been a worth wile one. Not just today , continue that habit everyday , and god shall bless you ( at least, some crows and other birds out there will ) . By doing so , you will save many birds which just DIE because of THIRST. Its going too dramatic, isn’t it ? Lets spice it up with some facts . So here goes –
World Sparrow Day is a day designated to raise awareness of the house sparrows and other common birds to urban environments, and of threats to their populations, observed on 20 March.It is an international initiative by the Nature Forever Society of India in collaboration with the Eco-System Action Foundation (France) and numerous other national and international organisations across the world.
World Sparrow Day also has a broader vision to provide a platform where people who are working on the conservation of the House Sparrow and other common birds can network, collaborate and exchange conservation ideas which will lead to better science and improved results. It aims to provide a meeting ground for people from different parts of the world to come together and form a force that can play an important role in advocacy and in spreading the awareness on the need of conserving common biodiversity or species of lower conservation status.
So , before you think ” why have I spent time reading this stupid article? ” go out there with a bowl of water for those cute ones. This is Poojitha signing off ! Bye !
