Coming in November: 8th Asian Bird Fair – Ulsan!

The Asian Bird Fair (ABF) is an annual bird fair that is held in a different Asian city every year.  The  ABF highlights the different bird festivals in Asia and seeks to promote birdwatching and conservation in the Asian region.  The Wild Bird Club of the Philippines is one of the founding organizations and hosted the 1st Asian Bird Fair in Davao City in 2010.  The ABF has since been held in the following cities (chronological order) Tainan (Taiwan), Bangpoo (Thailand), Taipei (Taiwan), Langkawi (Malaysia), Singapore, Jingshan (China).  
The 8th Asian Bird Fair will be held in Ulsan (Korea) on November 17-21, 2017.  Below is the official video for the 8th Asian Bird Fair – Ulsan.  


Here is the schedule of activities for the 8th Asian Bird Fair. We encourage WBCP members to join this annual event to promote the birds of the Philippines to birdwatchers from all over.
