The Safari Naturalist


On 8th May, 2021 it was yet another Global Big Day. This day also marks the World Migratory Birds Day.

It was a very successful day where 51,800 birders from 192 countries collectively reported 7,234 species in a single day. This is a mega record for the world and a great win for birds. 

Our Safari Naturalist team managed to take part in the event; where we birded the beautiful Nairobi National Park, scoring 132 species in the single day’s visit. Please see the video shared here.

The full global results are available on the eBird website.

Below are some statistics from the Global Big Day that was done in May 2021.
