Today is World Migratory Bird Day (Second Saturday of May)! Migratory birds are birds that travel from one place to another at regular times and often over very long distances, like from Alaska to Australia!!
~
These close relatives of dinosaurs, who gave us the idea of flying, connect environments all over the world in search of breeding and feeding grounds. Habitat destruction, over hunting and pollution have resulted in the need for these birds to be protected as many are now endangered.
~
These birds fly through many different jurisdictions so working with many different stakeholders, conservation is difficult, but still highly important. ~
This year's migratory bird theme is plastic pollution, with roughly 40% of all sea birds containing plastic inside of them. This isn't hard to imagine when nearly 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic enters the ocean every year. These birds also suffer slow agonising deaths from discarded fishing gear.
~
What can you do?? Cut single use plastics from your life, do beach cleanups, water way clean ups, raise awareness and recycle recycle recycle. 91 percent of plastic produced is not recycled!! (Also not a popular opinion but cats are responsible for 4 billion bird deaths in the US alone, please keep your cats indoors!!!)
