The Institute of Tropical Forest Conservation at Bwindi shares its exciting new vision with us

11 Mar

 

Listen to what Miriam van Heist from the Institute of Tropical Forest Conservation  ( ITFC ) has to say in the above YouTube video clip about their exciting new vision . Part of the vision of the Rare Finch Conservation Group ( RFCG ) is to promote the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda , with its 43 finch species which includes the threatened and elusive Shelley’s crimsonwing finch, as the world’s top destination for finch enthusiasts.

In August the RFCG will be taking its first group of seven guests from Australia to Bwindi and already some of the group members are taking special lessons on wildlife bird photography to ensure that they can enjoy the trip to its absolute maximum. All profits from the trip will be donated to the Rare Finch Conservation Group which is registered as a non-profit organisation.

The RFCG believes in upskilling the local community at Bwindi wherever it is possible and creating a new EcoTour industry for finch enthusiasts is part of that vision .
