It is that time of the year again where our winged friends embark on their long journey from colder homes heading to warmer climates. This annual event is organised to promote the importance of the birds as a natural indicator of the planet Earth’s health. Bird lovers can expect to see dozens of species of our feathered friends stopping by en route to their destinations.
The Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) and Kuala Selangor Nature Park (KSNP) celebrates this yearly event by organising a two day Festival of Wings 2011 to be held at Kuala Selangor Nature Park from 22nd to 23rd October 2011. As a premier eco-tourism site in Selangor, the event also aims to create an awareness of the environment as this year is aptly declared as the International Year of Forests by the United Nations (UN). Lots of fun and exciting activities are in store for nature lovers and the public to participate and enjoy. There will be a FOW-BATA Run 2011 held on 22nd October at 7.00 am, bird watching sessions, mangrove river cruises and tours and a firefly tour. It is truly an exciting event not to be missed.
