JU Live: A daylong bird fair will be held at Jahangirnagar University (JU) on Friday (February 3), aiming to create mass awareness about wildlife conservation and preserving birds.

The Zoology Department in association with the Wildlife Rescue Centre, Bangladesh Bird Club, Aronnyok Foundation, Prokriti O Jibon Foundation, Bangladesh Zoological Society, and International Union for Conservation of Nature will organize the fair, said a press release, reports UNB.

JU vice-chancellor professor Nurul Alam will inaugurate the program in the morning at Zahir Raihan auditorium premises of the university.

Convener of the fair professor Md Kamrul Hasan said, 'We are expecting a successful fair as the previous years. Moreover, the fair will bring more hype this year as we could not organize the fair last two years due to the Covid pandemic.'

The daylong fair will include an inaugural session, a competition of bird identification through audio and video, a debate on the environment, and bird painting competition for children, an award-giving session, and others.
Besides, a total of 7 bird conservationists will be awarded under three categories - Big Bird Bangladesh Award, Conservation Media Award, and Scientific Publication Award.
