Year :

37th Singapore Bird Race

The Singapore Bird Race is back for its 37th year! Held on 11 & 12 Dec, the theme for this year is Migratory Raptors of Singapore.

The current theme builds upon the 2018 theme (focused on migratory shorebirds), and broadens the scope to migratory birds in Southeast Asia, building upon the current interest in migratory raptors in Singapore.

Three iconic bird species are associated with the theme for 2021; Black Baza, Oriental Honey Buzzard and Japanese Sparrowhawk.

The Singapore Bird Race is organised by the Nature Society (Singapore) (NSS) to promote the appreciation, awareness and conservation of wild birds in Singapore, and local biodiversity more broadly to the Singaporean public. The Bird Race has also served as a source of scientific knowledge on the distribution and conservation status of endangered birds in the country. The data collected has also been used in guiding national conservation assessments. Held annually since 1984, the Singapore Bird Race is among the longest-running citizen science events in Southeast Asia.

This event is generously supported by our main sponsor, Mapletree Investments since 2019. We remain extremely grateful for their continuous support!
