Hi Dave,

Binocs are on the list of items needed for the rangers under the Conservation Support Project, which is run by Sandra MacFadyen. Perhaps she could recommend whom needs binos?



Followed your advice DinkyBird and contacted Sandra who promptly replied and will let me know where and to whom I should deliver the two pairs of binoculars I have.

Thanks for your precious advice

It's a great pleasure for me to contribute in some way. I have a lot of friends interested in wildlife conservation and getting them to help can make a change.
I hope to be able to contribute in other ways and will keep you updated.

I donated a pair of Binoculars in Mar,
EJ knew of a field guide in the CB area who was in need of some and she took care of getting them to him. :D

Yellow Ribbons are a symbol, and a powerful one if used properly.

As I was donating two pairs of new binoculars to Sanpark I thought I'd mark them some way and came out with my Yellow Ribbon cut-out stickers.

I also placed one on my lens hood and on my own binos.
