Dear Tourism Initiative member
Hope this finds you all well.
Western Cape Birding presented courses at George and Plett during January and have been requested to do one somewhere between George and Knysna. Details of the course to be presented at Sedgefield on 28 and 29 August can be found at the following link:
Participants in this course roughly represent three groupings:
- Novice birders wanting to become involved in the hobby
- People from nature conservation agencies wanting to improve career possibilities, or sent on the course by their employers
- People from the tourism industry and these include general tour guides, employees from local and regional tourism offices and product owners of lodges, B&B's, game farms, etc. Most of the latter group attend the course to gain better insight into the growing importance of birding tourism
