Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race 2010

 
23 Jun 2010

24 years ago, the Selangor Bird Group and MNS developed the concept of race for the conservation for birds and ran the first ever Bird Race in Kuala Selangor. Two years later, MNS and Fraser’s Hill Development Corporation (FHDC) collaborated and ran The Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race with only 5 3-man teams of Birdwatchers.

MNS is proud to note that The Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race has not only turned International, but also earned a spot as an important annual event for birdwatchers all over the world.

Over the weekend (19th to 20th June 2010), birdwatchers and the public flocked to Fraser’s Hill to be part of the festive ambience of The Fraser’s Hill International Bird Race. With the participation of a total of 26 teams, and a foray of international participants from Sweden, Korea, Japan, United Kingdom, Norway and Singapore, the event was truly a success and has given MNS an important new information about birds recorded during the event. Singaporean team IORA clenched the first prize with an astonishing identification of 74 bird species in the 23 hours time limit.

MNS also launched our latest publication “The Checklist of the Birds of Peninsular Malaysia”, a comprehensive publication which is the result of 2 years of meticulous work by the Records Committee  (headed by Mr Dave Bakewell) of the MNS-Bird Conservation Council.
