Birding The Strait ha sido beneficiaria del Fondo Europeo de Desarrollo Regional cuyo objetivo es conseguir un tejido empresarial más competitivo y gracias al que ha participado en el British Birdfair / Feria de las aves del Reino Unido para fomentar la internacionalización de la empresa y promocionar el turismo ornitológico en el estrecho de Gibraltar. Esta acción ha tenido lugar en Agosto de 2017. Para ello ha contado con el apoyo del Plan Internacional de Promoción de la Cámara de Comercio del Campo de Gibraltar.
There is an unmissable event this weekend (18, 19 & 20 August) for the international birding community. The 29th edition of the British #Birdfair will be held at the Rutland Water Nature Reserve, UK. In 2017, under the motto “Saving Paradise in the Pacific”, the Birdfair will be raising funds for vital work to save endangered species from extinction, including the Rapa Fruit Dove and the Polynesian Storm-Petrel.
Birding the Strait will take part as an exhibitor for the 5th consecutive year. This time in addition to the Stand of Andalucia Tourism Board (Marquee 2 – Stands 8, 9 & 10) we will be present at the Andalucia Wildlife Guides stand (Marquee 1 – Stand 30) as well.
Remarkably, on Thursday 17 the Andalucia Tourism Board will be sponsoring the welcome reception at the Restaurant Marquee including a welcome speech by Tim Appleton.
Spain and particularly Andalucia are among the top European destination for international birders and nature lovers. For this reason, we are proud to witness the increased quantitative and qualitative presence in the Birdfair of Spanish professionals in the nature tourism sector.
Birding The Strait wants to invite all of you to meet our tour leaders Javi Elorriaga and Yeray Seminario to exchange firsthand experiences on the birding and wildlife photography possibilities that our most frequented destinations offer: Tarifa, the Strait of Gibraltar, Doñana National Park, Andalusia, The Canary Islands, Morocco, the Atlantic Sahara and much more!
Moreover, we will be offering a 15% discount on every day trip and half day trip of birding in Tarifa and the Strait of Gibraltar booked for the period October 2017 – February 2018.
If you are considering to purchase a new scope while visiting the fair, we do eagerly recommend you to test the new (2016) Razor HD 27-60 x 85 Spotting Scope at NewPro stand (Marquee 1 – Stand 1 & 2).
