Together with International Veterinary Student’s Association (IVSA)-Sylhet Agricultural University and Sylhet Veterinary Services, we celebrated World Migratory Bird Day 2021 on 30th October 2021 at Baluchor Government Primary School, Sylhet. We arranged this program in an area where every year many migratory birds come during the winter. Therefore, it’s essential to increase awareness among the local people and children about the importance of the conservation of migratory birds and their habitats, which is the main goal of our event.

Every year locals hunt the birds and sell them, that’s why raising awareness is essential to modify their behavior. Our volunteers were the students of Sylhet Agricultural University, who are very interested in the behavior, ecology, role of migratory birds. Therefore, this program include, the lecture for university student regarding the route, habitat, various species of migratory birds in Bangladesh. And also, we arranged a drawing competition with the primary students with the theme of “Migratory Birds”. This was evaluated by the teachers and the best three drawings was recognized with a special prize. We also provided a plaque of appreciation to the school authority for their kind support.

We also presented a token of appreciation to the school authority. Before the end of the program, we have provided snacks to every participant. Also, we have distributed T-shirts with EAAFP and WMBD logos to our students. During this event, we distributed materials such as leaflets, posters, etc. to the students, and to the locals to reach out to more people to raise awareness. The local students were highly motivated not to harm any birds at any moment and help to spread the message to their family and friends about this. We have successfully fulfilled the goal of our event. At the end of the programme, the school authority, speakers and all the volunteers thanks the organizers such as EAAFP for their kind support.
