Every year, on March, we celebrate Raptor Watch , a festival to celebrate the return of the migratory birds of prey. This year, MNS is organizing Raptor Watch Virtual event on 13th March 2021.
As part of Raptor Watch event, MNS is organizing Raptor theme contests with the aim to raise awareness among public on protecting, conserving and caring for raptors. The competition is open to students aged 4 to 25. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, MNS has adapted this year’s competition so it can be completed remotely, with entries submitted via link given below or email. Students under the age of 12 years must be assisted by a responsible adult (e.g. teachers or parent). All entrants who submit submissions will receive e-certificates.

RAPTOR WATCH 2021 – VIRTUAL EVENT
Save the date and book your seat now!
We are excited to invite you to the first virtual Raptor Watch! It’s the time of the year once more to celebrate raptors. Raptor Watch (RW) is an event organize by MNS annually in Tanjung Tuan. Tanjung Tuan has been listed as an important raptor site by BirdLife International, National Geographic Society and Hawkmountain. The main aim of RW is to raise awareness on the importance of raptor migration, gain public support in conserving Tanjung Tuan, monitor raptors population and promote other raptor migration watching sites and flyways throughout Malaysia. RW is an opportunity for the public to witness one of the nature’s most exquisite offerings. Raptors migrate southward to escape the bitter cold of the northern winters and make some venturous journey back during spring to their breeding grounds in temperate Asia. The spring raptor migration actually begins in mid Feb and lasts till mid April.
This year, due to covid-19 pandemic, Raptor Watch 2021 will be celebrated virtually. Hence, we are excited to invite you to Raptor Watch 2021 which will be held on the following date:
Time: 9.30am – 4.30pm
This year, as we celebrate raptors, let’s delve deeper into the topic of Raptor Watch in Malaysia by Kim Chye, Raptor Celebration with International Partners, live updates from Tanjung Tuan on raptor counting, official launch of book, “MALAYSIAN BIRDS – A GLIMPSE” by Stella Rajendran and many more.
