Gujarat to host annual bird watchers’ conference from January 31


The 4th Global Bird Watchers’ Conference, the annual event of Gujarat tourism department in coordination with forest department will be held for three days, from January 31.

Gujarat tourism department in association with various organization began this event in 2009-10 to put water bodies in the state on the international map and attract tourists. It has become a regular event.

Officials said Gujarat is emerging as an eco-tourism destination, being host to wide range of pristine and hitherto unexplored destinations for nature lovers. The conference will not only showcase the destinations of Gujarat, but discussions will also be held on how to preserve these winged visitors who are facing many threats.

The objectives of the fourth conference were to promote Gujarat as a birding destination and project it as a eco-tourism destination, the officials said.

The conference aims to provide a platform for discussion by international experts on birds, birding and bird watching to promote tourism and conservation.

Also, the conference will discuss the migratory route of birds from Europe and West Asia to the coasts, wetlands and islands in Gujarat. The focus is likely to be Nalsarovar and nearby areas as the water body was recently declared a Ramsar site, officials said.
