History of World Sparrow Day
The first time of World Sparrow Day was on March 20th 2010 and then it became the official holiday around the world per year. World Sparrow Day is an international initiative initiated by Nature Forever Society (NFS) in India to influence awareness about house sparrows and other birds. Mohammed Dilawar, founder of the Nature Forever Association, has worked as an Indian conservationist for many years to raise awareness about the importance of conserving house sparrows.
Celebrating World Sparrow Day is a way to provide information about how to conserve house sparrows and other birds. This day is also celebrated to convince people to admire the beauty of biodiversity and nature and protect it. The World Sparrow Day celebration acts as a platform for those who are working for the cause of protecting and preserving sparrows in their homes. On this day, various types of events, campaigns and activities are organized to encourage people to participate in the cause.
World Sparrow Day is a very important opportunity to protect and conserve sparrows and other birds, and to encourage more people to join the event for the cause of sparrow conservation.
Each year a theme is assigned for the celebration of World Sparrow Day. All events, campaigns and activities are organized by theme. Sparrows have always been around us since our childhood. We share a special bond with them. The I Love Sparrow theme will remind people of that bond and encourage them to come forward to help their childhood friend, the sparrow. We can also do a lot on our individual level to help protect the sparrows, such as Build a nest for the sparrows, Water them in the summer or Place bird feeders in the yard and garden.
