Today is World Sparrow Day, celebrated to raise awareness about the threats faced by Sparrows and other common birds. Most of us have been familiar with these little brown birds since our childhood. As per the recent surveys, the sparrows are rapidly diminishing from our cities due to habitat loss & pollution.
Little things that we can do to make a difference:
– Keep bird feeders and water bowls in your gardens, terraces, balconies so birds can come and feed on them.
– Grow more plants to prevent loss of habitat.
– Minimize the usage of insecticides and pesticides in your plants.
– Educate yourself about this issue and talk to people in your society to create awareness.
Turn up the volume and do share to spread the message.
