Art Environment – World Wetland Day Poster Competition

February 2, 2013 @ 9:00 am - December 31, 2023 @ 4:30 pm

Every year, Mumbai mudflats in Sewri are visited by thousands of pink migratory birds- Flamingos. They arrive into the city late November and remain with us till May and depart just before monsoon. This World Wetlands Day which is celebrated on 2nd of February, we celebrate Flamingos and their Wetlands. This date marks the signing of the ‘Convention on Wetlands’ in 1971 at Ramsar, Iran. Sewri though not a Ramsar site but has been declared as Important Bird Area. Wetlands are essential ecological features in any landscape as they are home to hundreds of species of birds along with fishes, mammals and insects. Mumbai is slowly loosing its wetlands which is home to the large mangrove stretches- the storm dividers for the Mumbai coast. Its time we create awareness about the wetlands and its inhabitants on this eco-day. Therefore the BNHS’s Conservation Education Centre, in collaboration with Rotary Club Bombay is organizing a Poster Competition for Schools. This is a call to all teachers, parents and students who believe in this cause and would like to help us in developing an Educational and Innovative Exhibition on Wetlands.
