During the four days between 17 and 20 February, more than a thousand birdwatchers throughout India will come together to document as many birds in as many locations across the country as possible.
Over one lakh birdwatchers globally participate in the annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), and last year India was the third highest contributing country worldwide, and discovered more species than any other!
A press release for this year’s Great Backyard Bird Count in India has just been issued, and added to our publicity resources, including a media kit with various high resolution images. You are welcome to circulate this to publicise GBBC and the Campus Bird Count, and feel free to edit it to be more specific to your region, mentioning any local events that are planned for example. If you have contacts within the media then please do forward it on.
