GBBC India 2017 Press Release 2

The World’s Biggest Bird-a-thon comes to India!

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!

      Please upload your lists to the ‘hotspot’ for the campus. Every campus in the Campus Bird Count must have at least one hotspot specified in eBird. Does yours have one?
