Glen Holland , author of  Encyclopedia of Aviculture, has brought a group of enthusiastic Australian and UK aviculturists to visit some of the top breeding facilities in South Africa as well as to do some exciting birding in SA, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
This is the second tour that he has organised to South Africa and once again he has made a valuable donation to the RFCG from the proceeds of the tour.
The RFCG would like to thank him and his group for supporting the vision and ideals of the Rare Finch Conservation Group . The RFCG would also like to publically thank those SA avicuturists who allow these specialist tour groups to visit their impressive facilities.
The RFCG is currently raising funds to support a third field study in Uganda to try and find the threatened and elusive Shelley’s crimsonwing finch. This high altitude species is one of Africa’s rarest finches. The study will be done in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, the Mgahinga Mountain Gorilla National Park and the Rwenzori Mountain Park . All 3 parks are high altitude parks. Should you wish to find out more about the RFCG or become a sponsor or donor then please contact  our secretary at
The Rare Finch Group is registered as a non-profit organisation
