Environment for the Americas

BirdNote partners with Environment for the Americas (EFTA) to promote World Migratory Bird Day and bird conservation education.

Environment for the Americas is home of World Migratory Bird Day. International MIgratory Bird Day was created in 1993 to celebrate bird migration and motivate conservation action on behalf of birds. Today, events and programs are hosted year-round at more than 550 sites from Canada to Colombia as part of World Migratory Bird Day. Learn more about Environment for the Americas.

World Bird Day is celebrated in May, but materials are available and events are held throughout the entire year! Find an event near you.

There's a new poster every year - here's the artwork for a recent poster.

Art by Barry Kent MacKay is featured on the front. The poster back has information about life cycles and their importance to bird conservation.
