The Lucknow-based 'Go Green Save Earth Foundation' has launched 'Water to Birds' campaign which will continue for whole summer season as a part of the observance of the World Sparrow Day, informed the environment activist Vimlesh Nigam from the city.

"We had been distributing free sparrow box-nests, water trays and tree saplings with a determination to save and conserve sparrows, water, soil, jungles and animals since 2012, but this year Hamrah Foundation has also joined us in this endeavour," he said while appreciating the inputs from the Forest Department of Uttar Pradesh and the district administration.

In Lucknow, the day was marked with various kinds of activities and events like free distribution of box nests, art competitions, awareness campaigns, and sparrow processions, interactions with media and contributions to media in form of news items and articles.

World Sparrow Day, an observance to raise awareness of the house sparrow and then other common birds to urban environments, is now observed in many countries on 20th March.

The observance is spearheaded by the Nature Forever Society of India in collaboration with the Eco-Sys Action Foundation (France) and numerous other national and international organisations across the world.

The observance was initiated by an Indian conservationist Mohammed Dilawar of Nashik which has become a worldwide observance to appreciate and preserve the beauty of the common biodiversity.
