A BRIEFING on the first Brunei ‘Bird Race’ was held last Friday at Tasek Lama Recreational Park to prepare participants for the actual event, which starts today. The ‘Bird Race’ is jointly organised by the Photographers Association of Brunei Darussalam and the Tourism Development Department.
The ‘Bird Race’ is a photography competition whereby participants engage in photographing the local birds at the Tasek Lama park as well as to enhance public awareness on forest conservation.
The event also hopes to promote Brunei’s pristine forests as a tourist attraction as part of the ‘Kenali Negara Ketani’ (KNK) tourism promotion drive as well as to collect photographs and data of the different birds found at the recreational park.
