How does an entire species of a bird so closely knit to humans, slowly disappear and we don’t even blink an eye?

20 March is celebrated as World Sparrow Day, thanks to the efforts of Mohammed Esmail Dilawar, a Nashik based ornithologist who has spent thirteen years in conserving the House Sparrow or Passer Domesticus. He is the Founder and President of the NGO Nature Forever Society, that first launched 20 March as World Sparrow Day in 2010 as an international initiative, in collaboration with Eco-Sys Action Foundation (France) and numerous other national and international organisations across the world.
