Malaysian Nature Society Terengganu: Birdwatching and Presentations

For the third year in a row, the Malaysian Nature Society Terengganu branch, together with students and staff from the University Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) and University Sultan Zain Alabidin (UNISZA), are celebrating WMBD 2017. The program will include a birdwatching activity from 7:00 to 9:00 am at UNISZA lake side to recognise some resident and migrant bird species, and how important natural sites are as food and rest sites for migratory birds.

Afterwards, the participants (university students, staff, general public) will attend one-hour indoor activity. We will present the history of WMBD and discuss this year's theme: Their Future is Our Future - A Healthy Planet for Migratory Birds and People. In addition, there will be a presentation of the different flyways, since Malaysia is located within the East Asian Australasian Flyway (EAAF). Our presenters will be Dr. Andulmaula Hamza of UMT and Mr. Anuar Mcafee of the international office in UNISZA. Both speakers are committee members of the Terengganu branch of the Malaysian Nature Society (BirdLife partner in Malaysia).

The Celebration then will end with light refreshments and informal discussions among participants.
