Spot Fiji’s Migratory Shorebirds

Saturday, March 21, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

FJD $5 – FJD $15

Spot Fiji’s migratory shorebirds with us!

Saturday, 21st March 2020, 12.30 PM – 2.30 PM

Fun For All Ages

Join BirdLife’s Dr. Mark O’Brien at the Nasese foreshore to get a closer look at some of our amazingly beautiful migratory shorebirds in their full breeding plumage. Meet at the shelter opposite Corpus Christi Teachers College ground (between Crystal restaurant and My Suva Park) on Saturday, 21 March at 12.30 PM. This particular site is of special scientific interest because the breeding waders have traveled thousands of miles to this spot in Fiji to feed as they get ready for breeding.
