Are you looking for a birding guide in Tarifa and the Strait of Gibraltar? Come to say hello and meet Yeray at the Andalucia Wildlife Guides stand and Javi at the Andalusian Tourism Board stand. They are both at marquee 2.

We will be willing to inform you on the multiple wildlife experiences our region offers. These include: raptor migration in the Strait of Gibraltar, whalewatching for small groups off Tarifa, birding trips to northern Morocco, day visits to Doñana, the Griffon Vulture migration, etc.

Likewise, we will be pleased to show you the tailor-made birding tours we run throughout Spain and Morocco. Some of them in collaboration with the foremost international tour-operators.

Wildlife photography in Andalusia

We are keen wildlife photographers and the Birdfair will be an excellent place to share with you our experience. After years of working with DSLR cameras, we are now exploring the Micro 4/3 system for birds in flight and video. Raptors on migration, Iberian Orcas, Bald Ibises, Owls and Nightjars are some of our frequent targets.

Moreover, we will have at your disposal the new released wildlife photography book “Feathers amongst the towers”. This high quality book, in limited edition, shows the artistic work by our colleague Pako Zufiaur. He is, no doubt, the photographer who has spent longer ours capturing the bird migration in the strait of Gibraltar. He has a special dedication to a challenging subject: birds in flight!

La Janda, a birding hotspot

As active members of Laguna de La Janda Friends Association, we want to share with you the most updated information on this birding hotspot. In addition, this will be an excellent opportunity to get the latest information on the conservation efforts the association is doing towards the future recovery of the formerly largest lagoon of Spain.

We thank the Tarifa Townhall and the Tourism Boards of Cádiz and Andalucía for their continuous support to our work.

See you at the Birdfair 2018!
