We are helping local communities
Apart from our well trained bird guides, we work with the local communities and cooperatives as bird guides to increase their conservation awareness and enable them to benefit from tourism income. We pay special attention to vulnerable people like orphans living around birding sites where they can offer good services in tour guiding. Groups producing handicrafts are supported and sensitized on the sustainable use of natural resources to reduce the pressure on wildlife habitats.
