Please welcome… the Bar-tailed Godwit! It makes the longest recorded non-stop flight of any bird on the planet. It has been tracked going from Alaska to New Zealand crossing 11,000 km flying non-stop. In 9 days!
This is just one of the many species that migrate to the Philippines every year. These birds help us determine whether our ecosystems are in good condition. If they stop visiting, it means an ecosystem is in trouble.
Celebrate the start of the migratory season in the Philippines with us by joining the Bird Kite Festival on October 25, 2014 at Burnham Green, Rizal Park!
Visit our booths, design and fly a kite, and meet the Haribon ambassadors!
