Benson Bamutura, who was one of the very few people in the world to see the elusive Shelley’s crimsonwing finch,  sadly passed away 26 January 2014.

In memory of this great bird man it is planned to build a classroom in his home village in Uganda. Please read the link below. We would like to ask all our Rare Finch Conservation Group friends and supporters to consider making a donation, no matter how big or small, to this very worthwhile initiative by the Michigan State university in the US.

Without Benson we would not have been able to complete our first field study in Uganda on the threatened Shelley’s crimson-wing finch, nor would we have been able to conduct our very first RFCG fund raising EcoTour
