You may have never seen a race like this in Goa before!

If you thought the only events in Goa were related to nightlife, think again! A unique type of race was held in Goa on February 19 – a bird race! It was the second Goa Bird Race. The participants had to explore different sites and spot as many birds as possible.

This event helps in collecting crucial environmental data.  It gives an insight into how urbanization affects nature, leading to more awareness.

Those participating were in teams of four. One of the members had to be a good birder who knew about the region’s birds. The groups were free to choose their own birding spots and routes. Everyone had fun being close to nature when dawn broke until 6 pm.
