    Digital Desk: Every year on March 20th, World Sparrow Day is observed. House sparrows, which are firmly connected with human habitations, dwell in both urban and rural areas.  This day is marked to raise awareness about sparrows and to conserve them. Growing up, we all saw sparrows outside our windows, but the small bird is on the danger of extinction due to growing noise pollution. World Sparrow Day was established as an international initiative by the National Forever Society India in partnership with the Eco-Sys Action Foundation. Many other national and international organisations throughout the world raise awareness about house sparrows and other endangered species.
