    Description

    International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) was created in 1993 to increase public awareness, education, and concern for migratory birds and their habitats. As a day of recognition, it serves as both a celebration and a call to conservation action.4 Programmatically, IMBD offers resources to celebrants in the form of a suite of promotional and educational products as well as via communication networks such as listservs and webpages. IMBD also can provide celebrants with a focus in the form of an annual, general theme. Themes have included the importance of wetlands, the recovery of the Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus) from an endangered status, and the role of shade-grown coffee in preserving migratory bird habitat (USFWS 2002a). In 2002, the theme for IMBD was "Celebrating Special Places for Birds," with a particular focus on Important Bird Areas (IBAs).
