The Importance of National Bird Day

National Bird Day is more than just a day to admire the beauty of our feathered friends; it serves as a reminder of the importance of birds and the need for their conservation and protection. Birds are indicators of environmental health, with some considered to be keystone species. They're crucial to the balance of ecosystems in many ways, including contributing to:

  • Pollination
  • Pest control
  • Seed dispersal
  • Fertilization

A main focus of National Bird Day is also to raise awareness of the suffering caused by the global bird trade, where wild birds are caught and sold as pets, often with little care for their welfare.
