The author of Fiji’s first-ever State of the Birds Report says some worrying trends have been revealed about the country’s birdlife.
The report was compiled by the NGO Nature Fiji/Mareqeti Viti and Fiji’s Environment Ministry.
It has drawn on the experience of local birdwatchers and ornithologists to provide an overview of the issues facing Fiji’s birds.
The author, Dick Watling, says the report doesn’t go into much depth, but it has revealed a declining bird population and a lack of funding for conservation.
