Birding activity in Thailand

In 1974, a group of foreign and local birders led by Dr. Boonsong Lekagul founded Bangkok Bird Club, which later grew into Bird Conservation Society of Thailand (, the country’s partner of BirdLife International and the main organization for birding, bird-related activities and conservation projects.  The BCST has long been working alongside other NGOs, relevant government bodies, local birding and conservation clubs, bird tour companies, and conservationists.  Birding has become increasingly popular pastime among locals regardless of age and gender.
