As the population of coastal birds declines both worldwide and in Massachusetts, a conservation group in Plymouth, Massachusetts will lead a daylong event celebrating the migratory birds and discussing ways to help stabilize their numbers, according to an article on BostonGlobe.com.

The Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences will join various countries to mark the inaugural World Shorebirds Day on September 6, 2014, which seeks to raise awareness on the plight of the world’s endangered migratory birds.
