TPA & NCDC Launch Bird-watching Pocket Guide for Port Moresby
27 October 2014

Little is known of the interesting variety of bird-life inhabiting Port Moresby, the capital city of Papua New Guinea (PNG).

The recently launched Pocket Guide Book to Birds of Port Moresby showcases over a hundred species of birds likely to be seen in PNG's capital city.

Also mentioned in the guide are popular birdwatching sites that provide ideal avian habitats like Varirata National Park, for hill forest birds; and the Pacific Adventist University, for wetland and savannah birds.

The Pocket Guide Book to Birds of Port Moresby is an initiative of the PNG Tourism Promotion Authority
(TPA) and the National Capital District Commission (NCDC).

“This guide book is aimed at enhancing the tourism appeal of the National Capital District through the tourism product of birdwatching.  A diverse range of birds live in our capital city and we want visitors, residents and the general public to appreciate their existence.  TPA is grateful to the NCDC for funding the production of these guide books,” said TPA Policy and Planning Coordinator Mr. Heni Dembis during the launch.

Australian ornithologist Mr. Brian Coates collaborated with TPA to develop the information captured in the guide book.  Mr. Coates is a renowned expert in PNG birds and has spent years leading and assisting birdwatching tours and projects across the country.
