World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is an annual event, which was celebrated worldwide in over 60 countries in 2008. It was initiated by the African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (UNEP/AEWA) in collaboration with the global Convention on Migratory Species (UNEP/CMS) - two international environmental treaties administered by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). World Migratory Bird Day was created to raise awareness for the need to protect all migratory birds and their habitats throughout the world.
