Every second weekend in May, since 2006, we celebrate a World Migratory Bird Day. That day is celebrated primarily to raise awareness of general public about the need to protect migratory birds including their habitats. An iniciative to celebrate that day was launched under the sponsorship of an international “Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds” (AEWA) and “The Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals” (Bonn Convention).
Regarding celebration of this important day in nature conservation, Public Institution Nature Park “Vransko jezero” invited students, who previously participated in this year “Masquerade of The Birds”, to continue an educational class about the birds, through a class of bird watching in the very area of Special Ornithological Reserve in Nature Park. On this class participated students of DS Raštane Gornje and DS Vrgada with their teachers.
