October Big Day (Global Birding) is the annual celebration of our feathered friends that every year brings together thousands of people from all over the world through birdwatching. This time we turned our attention toward Divjaka-Karavasta National Park, where its rich wetland system sustains the migration of hundreds of birds on their lengthy and perilous journey south.
We had the incredible pleasure of sharing our knowledge about bird migration with the curious students of Germenj i Madh School and the Junior Rangers from the Regional Administration for Protected Areas (RAPA) Fier. Their curiosity was inspiring as they learned about where their favorite feathered friends spend the winter and the challenges they face during their epic journey.
The students were not just spectators; they became explorers of the park where, equipped with binoculars and spotting-scopes, they saw their favorite birds such as flamingos, herons and waders. Moreover, they demonstrated their commitment to nature by joining hands to clean a trail in the park, making their contribution to its protection.
We would like to thank RAPA Fier for their collaboration and, most importantly, all the little birdwatchers who made this day special.
