The successful hosting of the 9th Philippine Bird Festival in this city last year has prompted the birding community to form another bird festival.

With this, the Zamboanga State College of Marine Sciences and Technology with the support of the Department of Tourism and the wild Bird Club of the Philippines. ZSCMST’s aquaculture site is one of the havens for numerous bird species which also caught the attention of the bird watchers.  The event is slated on February 27, 2015 with lined-up activities like photo exhibits, face painting, origami and coloring, lecture and symposia, film showing and bird watching.

Itwill be participated by different government and private agencies, public and private higher education institutions, elementary and secondary schools. This is an endeavor to continually promote bird watching as an activity,  maintain the value of environmental awareness, and to highlight the distinctiveness of the city in the birding community having recognized the first documented breeding ground of the Great Egret in the Philippines.
