Focusing On The Conservation of Ecosystems, Habitats & Wildlife

National Bird Day 2014

Why National Bird Day?

  • The beauty, songs, and flight of birds have long been sources of human inspiration.
  • Today, nearly 12 percent of the world’s 9,800 bird species may face extinction within the next century, including nearly one-third of the world’s 330 parrot species.
  • Birds are sentinel species whose plight serves as barometer of ecosystem health and alert system for detecting global environmental ills.
  • Many of the world’s parrots and songbirds are threatened with extinction due to pressures from the illegal pet trade, disease, and habitat loss.
  • Public awareness and education about the physical and behavioral needs of birds can go far in improving the welfare of the millions of birds kept in captivity.
  • The survival and well-being of the world’s birds depends upon public education and support for conservation.

This is the reason for National Bird Day. Join them!

    You’re right Jay, the inaccuracy of dncirsbieg a lynx as fox-like is a crucial error which MUST be corrected. Normally people just write it off as simply coming from a typical journalist who knows nothing about the subject. That’s the quality of reporting I’ve come to expect. You know, after reading about bolt action .22 rifles described as “assault weapons”, or street-racer cars having “up to 2,000 horsepower”, my expectations of the MSM are pretty low. They at least related it to another animal. I’m sure somewhere, some anal retentive ignorant do-gooder is even now mounting a campaign to have Can-West sued for speciesism against lynxes, or against foxes, or some other equally stupid leftard reaction. It’ll likely try to connect Can-West with Harper and put them all in bed with George Bush. Yeesh. Rosie, if you just learned how to spell none of this would have happened.
