OPENPRESS) October 06, 2011 -- Malaysia's Langkawi region is to play host to a celebration of birds and wildlife during the Langkawi Birding and Fotofest 2011.
To be held between November 25th and 27th across the Langkawi archipelago, the event will take full advantage of the natural beauty and diverse ecological conditions in the area, with a range of different activities on offer.
Talks and workshops on conservation, photography and eco-tourism are to be held, as well as various stands selling products and services aimed at wildlife enthusiasts.
Kids' activities include an art competition and face painting, while various guided walks and tours are available to those wishing to see impressive specimens out in the wild.
However, the main events are the bird race and photography competition, which will see participants competing for cash prizes.
The bird race challenges ornithology fans to travel to designated sites to spot and record as many different species as they can within a time limit.
Meanwhile, the photography competition will see keen shutterbugs snapping candid photos of native Langkawi species, with winning entries appearing in a Wildlife of Langkawi calendar that will be sold to future visitors.
