The Bird Fair, which is an integral part of the Sasol BirdLife SA National Bird Week 2009, has been taking place at the Johannesburg Zoo since Sunday and will run until Monday.

The Sasol Birds and Birding Fair at the Johannesburg Zoo is a joint initiative between BirdLife South Africa, Africa Birds and Birding Magazine and the Johannesburg Zoo.

Not only has it become established on the birding enthusiast's calendar but is a great outing for families. The objective of the fair is to promote an interest in birding to improve bird conservation in South Africa.
