Wildfoot (born from Antarctica Bound and Arctic Bound) are delighted to once again be attending and exhibiting at the world famous Rutland Birdfair this year.
You can find us in Marquee 2, stand 1 – our usual spot.
Every year we meet wonderful people who have the same passion for birding and wildlife as we do and it gives us great pleasure to be involved in what is commonly known as “The Birdwatcher’s Glastonbury”!
It gives us even greater pleasure to announce that this year we are even more involved than usual. Alongside our usual mix of special offers available exclusively to Birdfair attendees, including an introduction to our new regions – Galapagos & Ecuador, Costa Rica and Brazilian Pantanal in South America and Botswana, Namibia and Zambia in Africa – we are also holding a free to enter prize draw giving attendees the chance to win the latest Opticron Discovery binoculars!
This year we are also sponsoring (along with our special expedition Partners, Zegrahm) a lecture which will take place Friday 21st August at 2.30pm in Lecture Marquee 2. The talk will be provided by wildlife expert and renowned author Mark Brazil and will cover Mark’s extensive knowledge and experience of the intriguing and wonderful wildlife of South Georgia – an area particularly close to our hearts. Click here to read more about Mark Brazil and what to expect from his talk.
The biggest news, however, is that our partner Zegrahm Expeditions have donated one of this year’s top auction items. On offer to the lucky bidder this year is an incredible 16 day expedition for 2 people to Patagonia, the Falkland Islands and Cape Horn, worth over £13,000!
Antarctica Bound are the official UK partners for Zegrahm Expeditions and we are delighted to be able to represent them at the Birdfair with this fantastic auction piece.
About Rutland Birdfair
Due to our close working relationship with Tim Appleton, co-founder of Birdfair, Antarctica and Arctic Bound have been attending the Birdfair for many years and have found it to be a calendar highlight each year.
Tim has worked tirelessly throughout his career in nature conservation raising awareness and vital funds for conservation projects throughout the globe. To read more about Tim and the vital work he carries out click here.
Jointly organised by the Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust and the RSPB, one of the most important elements of Birdfair is the large sums of money that is raised each year in order to fund these vital conservation projects, the majority of which comes from the regular Birdfair Auction. This year all funds raised from the auction will go towards helping to stop millions of birds being illegally slaughtered in the Eastern Mediterranean – a subject which is of particular concern right now.
If you would like to attend this wonderful 3 day event you can obtain tickets from the Birdfair official website or if you would like any further information on what to expect then please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to chat.
At the Birdfair you can find us in Marquee 2, stand 1.
