The Lekki Bird Club and the Nigerian Field Society invite interested bird watchers of all experience levels to join in a 6 to 12 hour team bird spotting competition. The purpose of the event is to promote bird watching, awareness of the environment, and protection of local habitat.
The competition will begin and end at the Lekki Conservation Center (LCC) along the Lekki-Epe Expressway. Teams of 3 to 5 members can compete in the full 12 hours (two half days) or a shorter 6 hour (half-day) competition. Individuals that do not have a team will be paired with a group to enable participation. The team that spots the most species of wild free living birds will be declared winners.
Birding will take place within the boundaries of 3 designated geographic locations that represent various habitats (Lekki Conservation Center, National Theatre and Tarkwa Bay). All sightings are restricted to the competition hours.
