World Sparrow Day and International Day of Forests

JCs Wildlife would like to give a huge shout out to human beings all around the world for the various observances this week! 

In addition to International Day of Happiness tomorrow (March 20), we also have World Sparrow Day. According to the official site, the day was designated to raise awareness about the decline of sparrows in their natural range, how the decline relates to other bird species, and how this correlates to humans and our environment. 

"The goal is to collectively inspire others to join the celebrations and to get as many people as possible involved in the conservation of house sparrows and their habitat across the planet."

The international initiative was started by the Nature Forever Society in India in collaboration with several other nature and conservation leaders around the world. You can take part by printing one of the organization's I Love Sparrows posters and snap a selfie with it. Specific instructions may be found on the World Sparrow Day site.

         


Be prepared to celebrate the International Day of Forests on Wednesday, March 21. This day was established by the United Nations to "raise awareness of the importance of forests to people and their vital role in poverty eradication, environmental sustainability and food security."

The theme for 2018 is Forests and Sustainable Cities.You may read more about the theme and watch the 2018 video on the UN website. Special events will be held around the world!
