Join the NatureFiji-MareqetiViti team and friends as we together commemorate World Migratory Birds Day and learn more about Fiji’s original tourists

Did you know that some animals migrate—or travel—to different places, usually when the season changes? Well, 11 May is a special day dedicated to migratory birds!

In honor of World Migratory Bird Day, NatureFiji-MareqetiViti invites you to find out more about Fiji’s original tourists—the amazing birds that travel to our islands for a few months each year!

Join us at the Nasese Foreshore on Saturday, 18 May, from 1:30 pm till 4pm.

Learn more about the Pacific Golden Plover, the Ruddy Turnstone and other migratory shore birds through fun activities.

And while you’re there, join us in pledging to Protect Birds – Be the solution to plastic pollution!

All ages are welcome!

11 May is World Migratory Bird Day, an international day to introduce the public to migratory birds and ways to conserve them. It is actually celebrated twice per year (the second Saturday in May and the second Saturday in October) because around the globe, migratory birds leave and arrive at breeding and non-breeding states at different times, depending on many factors.

Each year there is a single conservation theme to help highlight one topic that is important to migratory bird conservation.

This year’s theme is Protect Birds – Be the solution to plastic pollution. NatureFiji-MareqetiViti will hold a public event on 18th May 2019, which will also be the launch of our new Migratory Bird Campaign
