Save the date in 2018 for The Extremadura Birdwatching Fair (FIO). The 13th edition of FIO will be held from 23 to 25 February 2018 in Villarreal de San Carlos (Cáceres). Monfragüe National Park will once again host the fair, regarded as the most important event in birdwatching and nature tourism in southern Europe and the dean in Spain. This unique environment is a great area for birding and is home to emblematic birds such as the Spanish Imperial Eagle, Black Vulture and Black Stork.

In 2018 the Extremadura Birdwatching Fair will continue to offer a wide range of activities for professionals associated with nature tourism and birdwatching as well as the general public.

There will be an exhibition area for nature and birdwatching companies and organizations, optic equipment sales, photography conferences (FOTOFIO), the Spanish Bird Photography Contest, a professional program for tourist companies, and events for the general public: guided hiking routes, environmental education conferences, bird ringing workshops, activities for children, birding view points within Monfragüe National Park with experts, and much more.
