BirdsConTour is synonymous with bird conservation and tourism. The money needed for the various conservation projects (input gives wings) is derived from the tourism aspect (travel gives wings).
Traveling comes at a price and not all citizens can afford to participate on a bird watching trip. Others would like to devote more time to bird watching but can either not afford it that often or haven’t got the time.
Fortunately, BirdsConTour came up with the Bird and Birder Friendly Habitat project to help bird-loving people to a certain degree.
Bird friendly citizens are important for the protection of birds and their habitats. They form the basis in the conservation endeavors. To keep them involved and interested in bird life, the above-mentioned project aims at bringing birds into the gardens of citizens. People can obtain various accessories that birds need to be attracted to certain areas. This includes all sorts of feeders for different species of birds, such as nectar feeding-, seed feeding- and porridge feeding birds. BirdsConTour assists with consulting, planning and establishing bird and birder friendly gardens/habitats.
