           Mohammed Dilawar, an Indian conservationist started the NFS, is famed for his remarkable work to help the house sparrow in Nashik. Dilawar was named as one of the 'Heroes of the Environment' for 2008 by Time for his efforts.  The idea of World Sparrow Day was initiated during an informal discussion at the NFS's office. The idea was to reserve a day for the house sparrows and  to convey the public about the necessity of conservation of  house sparrow and other common birds.
