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

The recently launched Pocket Guide Book to Birds of Port Moresby showcases a variety of birds in the capital city, as well as birding sites and bird habitats such as mangroves, grasslands, wetlands and forests.

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.  An incredible variety of birds live in our capital city and we want visitors 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 renown expert in PNG birds and has spent years leading and assisting birdwatching tours and projects across the country.

The Pocket Guide Book to Birds of Port Moresby is available at the TPA Head Office, the NCDC Office and available as a pdf download on the TPA Corporate website Resource Books page.
