“World Migratory Bird Day” will be celebrated for the first time on October 13th with the slogan “Uniting our voices for bird conservation." The celebrations will be hosted in all three of Bahía de Banderas’ municipalities: the Higuera Blanca public plaza in the Riviera Nayarit, the El Salado Estuary, and the Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens.

The activities are free and open to the public and will include treks for birdwatching and environmental interpretation, a drawing contest for children, plus educational talks about the importance of the birds to the ecosystems and our own health, among many other surprises.

The event in Higuera Blanca will begin at 8:00 am with a birdwatching and environmental interpretation trek (occupancy is limited, please pre-register). It will be followed by activities and educational talks given by organizers and local eco-tourism service providers between 10:30 am and 2:00 pm. Right after there will be a screening of the movie The Big Year (2011, USA) from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Once that ends, the award ceremony for the Children’s Poetry and Drawing Contest will be held from 4:00 to 5:00 pm.

According to the organizers, this celebration is part of a global effort that includes 626 events in 200 cities across 73 countries, all reporting on the observation of more than 5,000 species of birds worldwide.

Let’s unite and celebrate the marvelous diversity of birds and ecosystems during this exceptional day dedicated to the conservation of birds in Bahía de Banderas!

The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) reaffirm their commitment to the strategic promotion of the destination, pursuing areas of opportunity including birdwatching tourism and consolidating new markets to increase the number of incoming tourists, together with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via the Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur).
