IMBD 2012 Art Unveiled
|The International Migratory Bird Day 2012 art was inspired by Environment for the Americas' work increasing diversity in bird watching and bird conservation. The work, created by Rafael Lopez, illustrates joy, curiosity, and community. |
As IMBD events are underway in the Caribbean and Latin America, spring migrations seem distant. Environment for the Americas is already preparing materials for you and your organizations. Once again, you have the opportunity to tell us what you need and to help craft the theme of the 2012 celebration. Take the quick IMBD 2012 survey!

Bird walks, school programs, art contests, and more will fill the month of October. Participants receive Migratory Bird Day materials and a new Migratory Birds of the West Indies coloring book, developed by the SCSCB (Society for the Conservation and Study of Caribbean Birds).
