SAN ANTONIO (December 3, 2020) — Today, City Council passed a resolution supported by Councilman Pelaez to recognize World Migratory Bird Day and the efforts of local organizers to achieve a Bird City Texas designation by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. In response, Councilman Pelaez issued the following statement:

“Today my colleagues and I added San Antonio’s voice to a global chorus of cities and institutions that celebrate World Migratory Bird Day each year to raise awareness of migratory bird conservation efforts and foster appreciation for the hundreds of species that travel through our community annually.

Migratory birds face great perils in their annual hemispheric journeys, and the chiming in of local communities to promote awareness can go a long way in protecting them.
It’s critical to thank the Bexar Audubon Society and the Bird City San Antonio Committee for their work in pursuing the Bird City Texas designation by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Once achieved, this novel accomplishment will highlight our City’s offerings for birding, ecotourism and world class nature experiences.

I also want to thank the Office of Sustainability and the Parks and Recreation Department staff for their work in shaping and providing input on this resolution, as well as their everyday work to promote green spaces, facilitate community well-being and make San Antonio an incredible place to live and visit.”
