National Birds Day 2021
By Team Prepmyskills
National Bird Day is celebrated on January 5th in many countries around the world, including India. It is a treat for bird-enthusiasts and others alike to catch a glimpse of the season’s birds after the winter months.
However, today is also the day to shed some light on the troubles of our winged friends. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature, almost 10,000 species of birds exist. Nearly 900 of them are on the verge of extinction. This is due to many reasons like bird hunting, trafficking, climate change, pollution, habitat destruction, and industrial farming.
We appreciate the beauty of birds and admire their carefree chirping as they freely soar through the sky. So, it is also our responsibility to save them from further harm.
