In this age traveling becomes more and more important to people around the globe. To keep an eye on nature and to balance tourism and nature conservation, BirdsConTour therefore initiated the “Travel gives Wings” division.
Tourists are led through the vulnerable nature on a sustainable manner. The tourism aspect serves as an income for the money consuming bird research and conservation projects. Only through visitors participating on tours, the research and conservation of our precious birdlife is possible. To say THANK YOU, every tour participant receives a Bird & Birder Friendly Award at the end of the tour.
Eight one penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Awards were handed to German guests and four to Swiss guests. The Sossusvlei Tour, organized by Pack Safari and Chamäleon Reisen, took place from the 27th of July until the 6th of August 2013.
