The Institute of Tropical Forest Conservation at Ruhija, Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda

The highly valued ground partners to the RFCG in Uganda, namely the Institute of Tropical Forest Conservation ( ITFC ), who are based at Ruhija on the edge of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, have kicked off the year with an exciting new website. Have a look at www.itfc.org and find out more about what this remarkable institute does.  You will also see a write-up on how they have assisted the RFCG over the years. The RFCG EcoTour scheduled for August this year will be visiting the ITFC as part of our program to raise the international awareness of the elusive and threatened Shelley’s crimsonwing finch. The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, with its 43 finch species, is rapidly becoming the world’s top destination for finch enthusiasts. 
For more information on the RFCG EcoTour please contact Russell Kingston at indruss@bigpond.com. All profits from the tour will be donated to the Rare Finch Conservation Group
 The Rare Finch Conservation Group has no full-time staff members and every member of the group volunteers their skills and services in the interests of advancing finch conservation work. The RFCG is registered in South Africa as a non-profit organisation . It is totally dependent on donations and sponsorships for its future survival . The RFCG is currently raising funds ( US$ 25,000 is needed ) to finance its planned Phase 3 field research work in Uganda.  For more information on this pioneering conservation group please contact editor@avitalk.co.za
