This is a working partnership with the City of Cape Town, CTEET and the Cape Bird Club.
The Birdathon is an annual event and is hosted by the City of Cape Town, CTEET and the Cape Bird Club.
Its function is to promote an interest in birds, and bird watching in the Southern Birding Area of the False Bay Nature Reserve.
These are photographic and written reports from the previous Birdathon’s, describing what there was to see and do.
Every event has been fun filled and enjoyed by all those participating.
2020 Birdathon – this year is a virtual event since, given the COVID 19 pandemic, it could not be held as usual. The videos (created by CTEET and displayed below) were distributed on flash drives to the pre-registered schools, along with print outs of the activity booklets. There were 141 pre-registered school kids this year. People were also encouraged to enter the reserve during the school holidays and the following week . Participants could post photographs to social media using the hashtag #VirtualBirdathon2020 to enter the lucky draw and win spot prizes. Non-registered participants could also download the activity book directly from the YouTube video descriptions.
