Doing more to promote Raptor Watch

Bird enthusiasts trying to catch a snap shot of a raptor at the Raptor Watch in Tanjung Tuan, Port Dickson yesterday.

IT was heartening to read the letter “Raptor Watch needs more publicity” (The Star, March 17) by Lionel Perera. It reflected not only the writer’s deep understanding of the raptor migration phenomenon but also his observation on the lack of promotional materials in the surrounding areas and towns in Negri Sembilan.

Raptor Watch is an annual event founded and organised by the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS) at the forest reserve of Tanjung Tuan, Alor Gajah, Melaka. From late February till early April every year, thousands of raptors from Siberia, China, Japan and other countries in the northern hemisphere will fly back to their home country from Indonesia and Australia (where they spend the winter months) taking the shortest route, that is through Tanjung Tuan.
