Do you remember the last time you saw a group of sparrows in your area?
World Sparrow Day is being observed today to raise awareness about the bird.
The need for marking this day was felt due to the tremendous decrease in its population.
This year the theme for WORLD SPARROW DAY is I LOVE Sparrows.
The theme has been inspired by the hope that more and more of us will celebrate the relationship between PEOPLE AND SPARROWS.
World Sparrow Day is a day designated to raise awareness of the house sparrow and then 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-Sys Action Foundation (France) and numerous other national and international organisations across the world.
The concrete jungle is taking over the lives of not just sparrows but even other birds and it is indeed a thing to worry about.
It is time we put serious thought to it and start working towards the conservation of these birds.
This World Sparrow Day, let’s decide to work towards the conservation of these birds who have now become an indicator of our childhood memories.
