The British Birdwatching Fair, most often known simply as the Birdfair, is an annual event for birdwatchers that has been held each August since 1989 at Rutland Water in England. REGUA has been represented at the Birdfair by our British volunteers Rachel Walls and Lee Dingain since 2007, when we were invited by our partners, the World Land Trust, to use part of their stand.
To celebrate our tenth year at the Birdfair, Nicholas and Raquel have flown to the UK to take part. Nicholas and Raquel will spending time with our regular volunteers Alan Martin, Sue Healey, Rachel Walls and Lee Dingain on the stand.
Nicholas will also be giving two talks (sponsored by the World Land Trust) in the Anglian Water Birdwatching Centre:
Friday 11:00 – 11:20: A conservation case study in the Atlantic Rainforest, Brazil by Nicholas Locke
Saturday 11:00 – 11:20: The Olympic Forest Reserve: preserving threatened habitat in Brazil by Nicholas Locke
In addition, our Wildscreen film, narrated by Michael Palin and produced by Verity White/Five Films, will be being shown regularly in the food marquee.
If you coming to the Birdfair, make sure you come by and visit us in marquee 1, stand 37. We look forward to seeing you.
