World Migratory Bird Day is a global awareness campaign day, celebrated to highlight the need for the protection of migratory birds and their habitats. It is usually celebrated annually at the end of summer (April - May) when birds starts to migrate to Europe as well as central and north Africa. This year's theme was 'Migratory Birds and People - Together Through Time' and it was emphasising the cultural, social, historic, economic and spiritual relationships between birds and people. In Botswana, it was celebrated at SOS Village in Tlokweng on Saturday 28th April 2012 and it involved school children spreading messages of conservation through songs, presentations and drama to showcase Botswana's diverse culture. Cheetah Conservation Botswana was invited to set up a stall and share their work with the Tlokweng community and this was attended by communications officer, Connie Sebati.
