EuroBirdwatch 2016

Sani Resort, together with the Hellenic Ornithological Society, is taking part in EuroBirdwatch 2016 and invites you to join us in a unique nature experience at the Sani wetlands! Eurobirdwatch is the biggest birdwatching annual event, comprising of activities organized by BirdLife’s national partners in over 30 countries over one weekend. Right next to our hotels is a different world, the Sani wetlands, which is a natural treasure, home to close to half of the total of bird species in Greece! Over 200 species of birds can be found there, many of them rare and endangered. With the University of the Aegean, we have worked on documenting the species of birds in the area and develop a plan for their protection. We invite you to join the experts of the Hellenic Ornithological Society- partners of BirdLife International, the world’s largest nature conservation Partnership for the conservation of birds and their habitats – for a guided panoramic birdwatching experience on Sunday, October 16th. You will be led to the Important Bird Area of lake Stavronikita, where with binoculars and telescopes you will enjoy a unique experience with the birds and several side events, like wildlife photography exhibition and environmental education activities for kids. Taking part is free but please register with the Guest Relations Team to ensure your place. There will be several trips leaving, at 10am, 11 am, 12 pm and 1pm. Please wear appropriate shoes and have a hat and sunscreen with you.
