Rayavadee, in the heart of Krabi’s beautiful Phranang Peninsula on the border of the Marine National Park, has introduced bird watching excursions for guests to discover with the help of a biologist the secrets of the most frequently seen yet mysterious wildlife.
The biologist leads a half-day bird watching tour that will appeal both to those who have not been bird watching before, as well as the experienced enthusiasts. The tour starts with a brief on local bird diversity and ecology as well as basic bird watching techniques and data reporting. Guests will then hike through different ecosystems depending on feasibility including forest edges and fields, evergreen forests, littoral forests, mangroves and beaches.
Participants are provided with binoculars and bird checklists to summarise their observations. They will also be introduced to the Ebird website, the world’s largest biodiversity-related citizen science project whose goal is to gather birdwatchers’ unique knowledge and experience in the form of checklists of birds, and freely share it to power new data-driven approaches to science, conservation and education.
Rayavadee is located in an area renowned for its natural beauty and rich flora, fauna and marine life. When the resort was built more than two decades ago, it was with the idea of living in balance within this unique environment. The accommodation was constructed to nestle in between the property’s many trees, none of which were cut during the process, in order to blend seamlessly with the natural surroundings. With the resort’s low-key approach to building, the habitat of the area’s many varieties of birds and animals was not disturbed.
