One of SANParks peers in the conservation arena, Birdlife SA, through their Western Cape Birding initiative is running another bird identification and conservation course in the Greater Pretoria region on the 25th and 26th of September 2014.
The course is designed in such a way the novices and more experienced birders can attend and it gets adapted to local condition depending on where the course gets presented. The program and other information is at this link:http://www.westerncapebirding.co.za/ove ... f_pretoria
Owners of lodges, B&B's and guest farms, as well as organisations such provincial conservation agencies and SANParks are the regular type of attendess. The staff of local and regional tourism offices also often attend. This is being done to gain a better understanding of the growing importance of birding tourism in view of servicing visiting birders better.
Anyone wanting to learn about or improve their birding skills is encouraged to attend.
