World Migratory Bird Day

Celebrate World Migratory Bird Day with ORK at the UGA Aquarium! Learn about the incredible diversity of birds that visit the Georgia coast each year during their migratory journeys. Bring the family for a fun day of hands-on activities and animal encounters.

Throughout the day, UGA Aquarium educators will be joined by ornithological organizations and birding experts who will have stations set up along the aquarium’s picnic area and Jay Wolf Nature Trail with educational activities for all age groups.

World Migratory Bird Day is an annual global campaign coordinated by Environment for the Americas that celebrates the migration of birds across countries and continents. This year’s theme is “dim the lights for birds at night,” and participating organizations are sharing steps that communities can take to reduce the impact of light pollution on migrating birds.
