Raptor Migration Watch at Taman Melawati Hill

NOTE: The disappointing decision made by MPAJ to approve IJM's development plans makes it more urgent for us to strengthen our resolve to save Taman Melawati Hill. Do not allow the devastation seen on nearby Amber Hill and 20Trees to be repeated on Phase 3 Hill, Taman Melawati. Come to the Raptor Watch to show you support to our fellow Ampang neighbors.

A Raptor Migration Watch will be held at Taman Melawati Hill, Taman Melawati, to observe the annual spring migration of raptors. The Migration Watch will be held in collaboration with the Asian Raptor Migration Survey, a project initiated and organised by the Asian Raptor Research & Conservation Network and other potential sponsors. This event will be led by Mike Chong a naturalist and ornithologist who studies wildlife, birds and raptor migration at Taman Melawati Hill.

Dates: 29 th March 2008

Time: from 10:00 AM

Things to bring: long sleeved shirt, hat, plenty of water, sun tan lotion and umbrella in case of sudden showers. Binoculars are very useful but we will try to get sponsors to provide binoculars and spotting scopes for people to watch the migrating raptors.

Venue: Taman Melawati Hill, Taman Melawati, Hulu Kelang
