Coinciding with the Global Big Day for the Birds on May 13, 2017, RSPN organized a bird watching program at Royal Botanical Park, Lampelri.

The birding event was aimed at introducing individuals of all ages to the fun aspect of birding while at the same time educating them on the importance of bird conservation. With the increasing loss of bird species throughout the world, bird conservation should be of great concern to all.

The participants were introduced to the basics of birding and bird study by the three resource person, Mrs. Rebecca Pradhan, Mr. Tshering Tobgay and Mr. Phub Dorji. Birders were also encouraged to record their observations on the bird sightings and at the end of the day; it was encouraging to see the participants report the sighting of various types of birds in and around the park.

Around 35 RSPN members and supporters took part in the event.
