BE A SPARROW SUPPORTER

Soon, children may hear stories that begin with, “Once upon a time, there was a little bird called a sparrow.”

Soon, but not yet. It is not too late to stop this calamity. Just the fact that you are reading this means, you have realized that we have suddenly become sparrow-unfriendly. You are curious to know if the House Sparrow can be saved from extinction. That’s the first step to saving the House Sparrow and to bring it back to neighborhoods where it has disappeared from.

Each of us can do our bit to save our neighbor of thousands of years. When you become a Sparrow Supporter, you make your locality and home; sparrow- friendly.

It’s not just the conservationist, researcher or government agencies that can save the House Sparrow. This bird depends on us to meet its ecological needs and it’s our responsibility to provide it with nesting sites, food, water and to keep its habitat safe.

You can also get associated with organizations like NFS to help in conserving and preserving the House Sparrow for generations to come.

Help birds in summer

Birds need clean water for drinking and bathing. Water is important in summer but it is also necessary through the year. Birds get the liquid they need from their food, and by drinking water. Many insectivorous birds get most of their water from food, while seed-eating birds like the House Sparrow have a dry diet and need to drink more water.

Celebrate World Sparrow Day

Every year, March 20 is celebrated across the globe as World Sparrow Day. The aim of World Sparrow Day is to celebrate our association with House Sparrows and create awareness in regard to sparrows. It also aims to bring together individuals and organizations from across the world on the same platform to save sparrows. When you become a part of this day, you become a part of being a supporter for saving and conserving the sparrow.

Celebrate Bird of The Month

This is part of the Common Bird Monitoring Program, aimed at monitoring, through detailed mapping of the 18 common bird species found across the country such as the House Sparrows, House Crow, Rock Pigeon, Rose-ringed Parakeets which are well known as well as the lesser known Ashy Prinia and Hoopoe.

SPONSOR SPARROWS

There are various ways in which you can not only sponsor the sparrow; you can also ensure that it survives. Your sponsorship will help us reach new target groups.

Adopt a nest box and bird feeder

When you shop for sparrows with NFS, you not only provide them with nesting sites and food all through the year, but also help us carry out conservation work. So come, be a part of the movement make your home a mini bird sanctuary.

Say yes to green living

By making our environment and surroundings more eco-friendly, you can create a conducive atmosphere for the sparrow to thrive and survive. Small measures like segregating waste, saving water and power will go a long way in saving birds and making our planet a better place to live.
