Hello and welcome to the home of the Bird Race Challenge, previously the Norfolk Bird Race. The 2017 race is going to be bigger and better so we’ve changed our name to reflect the new challenges ahead. Alongside the existing Bird Race we are also holding a Virtual Bird Race this year, which anyone can join in with.
We are proud to announce that the nominated charity for this year’s race is World Land Trust. The funds will raise will aid the research and conservation of the critically endangered Blue-throated Macaw (Ara glaucogularis) via Asociacion Armonia (a WLT partner in Bolivia). The Blue-throated Macaw is a national heritage species in Bolivia where less than 300 are thought to still exist in the wild.
