Thiruvananthapuram Bird Race 2017
The 11th Thiruvananthapuram Bird Race will be held on Saturday, 9th December 2017. Bird Race is a dawn to desk bird watching programme where ever you go on the day with an objective of popularizing bird watching and nature conservation. It is also a unique opportunity to observe and learn birds and their habits along with an expert bird watcher. The teams will go to seven selected bird rich sites along with expert birders from dawn itself and gather with their observations and information at YMCA Hall at Statue, Thiruvananthapuram. Each team will share their experience, learning and observations in the field. The Bird Race is being organized jointly by WWF-India and the Social Forestry Division of Kerala Forests & Wildlife Department.
