Festival of Wings

FOW 2014 will be celebrated on 18-19 October 2014

Festival of Wings is organized annually by MNS with the support of the Kuala Selangor District Council (MDKS) and the Selangor State Government. It was developed out of the need to promote the importance of birds as a natural indicator for earth health, awareness of the environment as well as promoting the nature park itself as an eco-tourism destination. Festival of Wings is a unique community carnival that takes place in the Kuala Selangor Nature Park every year to celebrate the biodiversity at Kuala Selangor which includes the migratory and resident birds that flock around Kuala Selangor during the migration season, the world famous synchronous fireflies and the beautiful mangrove forests.

Here’s why we organize this festival annually:

To promote Kuala Selangor Nature Park, Bukit Malawati and its surroundings, as a potential ecotourism destination to both local and foreign visitors.

To raise awareness of the importance of birds, fireflies and mangroves in Kuala Selangor.

To introduce and collect data regarding local and migratory birds at selected sites such as the Kapar Power Station, Kuala Selangor Nature Park and its surrounding areas.
