eBird Malaysia

By eBird Malaysia November 9, 2016

We are excited to announce the launch of eBird Malaysia – a regional eBird portal dedicated to birding endeavours across Malaysia. eBird Malaysia is run by a team of collaborators at Wild Bird Club Malaysia

Wild Bird Club Malaysia (“WBCM”) members have been documenting their bird checklists in eBird. It was therefore a natural progression for WBCM to partner with Cornell Lab of Ornithology to create eBird Malaysia. With the burgeoning growth of the Malaysian eBird community, we are pleased to showcase this portal as an excellent way to engage local birders and grow the eBird community throughout Malaysia.

Bird records in Malaysia were previously entered through the Bird i-Witness Malaysia portal, under the administration of the Malaysian Nature Society Bird Conservation Council (“MNS BCC”). Bird i-Witness ceased operations in 2015. For more information about MNS BCC, please click here. 

If you’ve been birding in Malaysia before, are currently, or will be sometime in the future, keep tabs on the eBird Malaysia page for regular information on birding news and events. We look forward to seeing even more people eBirding in Malaysia —helping inform birding, science, and conservation efforts across the country, south east Asia and the world.
