Bird Ringing Fair

Ecuador, November 7 to 27, 2022

the fair of the bird ringers

What is the Bird Ringing Fair?

Many times the protection of places, ecosystems and the survival of migratory species depends on the ringers.

Bird Ringing Fair is a necessary, indispensable meeting for bird ringers who operate in international projects, but also for those who want to be professionals in bird research through tagging.

The fair is worldwide, each year it is celebrated in a country and a continent. The idea is to facilitate the exchange of knowledge to those who carry out the most faithful and stable field work, the ringers.

the story

How the Bird Ringing Fair was born

In 2019 and within the framework of the Amazon Birding Fest, the first calibration meeting between bird ringers was held. Coming from Europe, Africa and America to exchange experiences and share knowledge. At this historic moment it was decided that Calibration should be a Camp for Ornithologists.

The first edition of the Bird Ringing Fair was planned for 2020 in Tanzania. But covid stopped it.

Within the new generation of Birdfairs, the Manu Birding Fest is born in 2020, the birdfair in the place in the world with the greatest diversity of birds and that lasts no less than a month! More than a birdfair, it is a true international ornithological camp, with participants from Scandinavia to South Africa.

This is the philosophy!

In what will it consist?

For 20 days ringers from different continents will ring together in four different places. From the beach and lagoons to the jungle. The idea is to get to know spectacular birds, work with them and encourage the creation of Bird Observatories in the Neotropics.
