Limboto Lake: pitstop of the bird, part of the world

This year, BioTa will take action and participate on the World Migratory Bird Day 2017 event in Gorontalo - Indonesia. The main objective of the event is to raise public awareness on migratory birds and their conservation action especially on protecting their habitat - Limboto Lake, one of the most important stopover habitats for migratory birds in Gorontalo. We plan to have birdwatching at Limboto Lake early in the morning, and educational activities at secondary and high schools near by the Limboto Lake afterwards. Photo exhibition on migratory birds will be conducted along the week of 10 May 2017 at government office of Gorontalo Regency, a public accessible center for government activity. Vary of awareness materials on migratory birds such as posters, banners, maps, and photos will be produced and presented. Video on World Migratory Bird Day - Official Trailer and the winner of WMBD video contest 2016 will also be played during the exhibition.  

We will encourage people in Gorontalo including students, local government, academicians, birdwatchers, photographers, and community groups especially who live around the lake to take action and participate on the 2017 WMBD event. All the activities above will be covered by media including newspaper, online news, TV, radio, and social media such as facebook, blogs, twitter and instagram. We are expecting to have 400 participants from all targeted participants involved on this 2017 WMBD event. BioTa will make every effort to get local pride on migratory birds and bird conservation in general.
