WMBD 2007

World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is a global initiative devoted to celebrating the beauty of migrating birds and for promoting their conservation worldwide. This year WMBD will take place on the weekend of 12-13 May and its central theme will be "Migratory birds in a changing climate".

World Migratory Bird Day (WMBD) is a day for young and old - adults and children around the world will celebrate the fascination of bird migration. To support the events aiming at children and to help them understand more about migratory birds in a changing climate, the WMBD website includes a special section for children. It features Gordon the Goose and Charlene Chick: they explain in four languages (English, Spanish, French, German) how climate change comes about and how it affects migratory birds. The big drawing competition encourages children to express their thoughts on the topic.

So get the children /grandchildren painting.
