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 initiated the “Travel gives Wings” division.
By traveling directly with BirdsConTour or making use of a guide from BirdsConTour you support bird conservation and create an economic platform for local livelihoods. Sometimes travelers also participate in another BirdsConTour project. To say THANK YOU, every tour participant receives a Bird & Birder Friendly Award at the end of the tour.
Cleaning sessions during the tour are part of the "BirdsConTour for a cleaner Bird Habitat" project. This time the surrounding area of a termite mound at the turnoff to Mount Etjo was cleaned from litter.
Eleven German-speaking guests were rewarded with one penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Awards:
Billmann Silke & Michael
Breitenstein Dorothea & Peter
Hoffmann Ingrid & Müller Lutz
Jonas Yvonne Helena Maria & Wirtz Wilhelm Heinrich
