Tobago Tourism Agency Attends British Birdwatching Fair

The Tobago Tourism Agency Ltd represented the island at the 2018 edition of the British Birdwatching Fair.

This was part of an ongoing effort to promote Tobago as a premier, globally competitive bird-watching destination and eco holiday option.

The event was held between August 17 and 19 at the Rutland Water Nature Reserve in Leicestershire, United Kingdom.

The event is the largest of its kind in the UK, and encompasses various key aspects of the bird watching industry, including tour operators, other destinations, equipment providers, wildlife associations, and soft adventure enthusiasts.

Over 22,000 visitors attended with participants seeking new destinations to visit.

“With birding being identified as one of the core attractors for the destination, it was important for us to showcase Tobago at this event, particularly because the United Kingdom accounts for more than 50% of our international arrivals,” CEO of the Tobago Tourism Agency Louis Lewis said.

Tobago is ranked fifth in the world among the top birding destinations per capita, according to the US based National Audubon Society.

 

More than 200 bird species can be found on the island.
