Wetlands are often undervalued and overlooked in society, yet they are so important. The Flufftail Festival takes place every year during Wetlands Month in Feb and it aims to raise awareness about a critical resource (water), a threatened habitat (wetland) and endangered birds, especially the White-winged flufftail. With less than 250 birds left, the White-winged flufftail is an extremely rare wetland bird.

BirdLife South Africa in collaboration with Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo, Rand Water (Water Wise), Toyota and the Rare Finch Conservation Group bring you the Flufftail Festival where you will learn about the value of water, wetlands and water bird.
