Asian Waterbird Census 2018 set in Candaba

CANDABA - The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Central Luzon Region and the Wild Birds Club of the Philippines are set to hold the Asian Waterbird Census 2018 in this town on Saturday, January 13.

The Asian Waterbird Census will be held at the Candaba Swamp, which serves as an important staging and wintering area for ducks and other threatened water birds from the northern hemisphere.

The census aims to give a platform for bird experts and enthusiasts to study and list the kinds of migratory and wild fowls which take refuge in the 30,000-hectare marshland during specific times of the year.

The activity will also be staged to further promote the protection and development of Candaba Swamp among government agencies, particularly the local government, and individuals and organizations concerned after reports said that it is not an ideal sanctuary for wild birds.

Several fowl experts and bird enthusiasts are expected to grace the said activity which is the first to happen in Candaba after at least five years.

The result of the Asian Waterbird Census is also expected to be released to the public by the end of Saturday after a whole-day bird watching.
