Limpopo Birding Routes was invited to exhibit at the 2018 Global Change Conference in Polokwane from 3-6 December. This extremely interesting event was attended by multidisciplinary climate change scientists and relevant NGO’s from across the globe. The fourth in a series of biennial conferences, it provided a valuable platform for all delegates to share their research results, experiences and innovative solutions to the some of the challenges of a changing planet and its threatened life-sustaining systems.
This popular event saw more than 1200 birders recording 646 species and nearly 42,000 sightings across the country. Incredibly, exactly half of the overall total of 646 species were recorded on the Capricorn-Letaba Birding Route by winning team ‘Zonke iNyoni’, with 323 birds. Congratulations Joe, Selwyn, Henk and Cornelius! Third-placed team ‘Wat Kyk Jy’ scored 305 on the same route, which just goes to show that the area around Polokwane and Tzaneen really is one of the premier birding destinations in the country!
Limpopo Birding Routes once again exhibited at the annual African Bird Fair, held in the beautiful Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens on 8 and 9 September 2018. The cold and windy weather made for some excitement with the exhibitors stands, but the event was nonetheless well attended.
Samson Mulaudzi and Marianne McKenzie were there to tell visitors about the many varied and exciting birding hotspots that Limpopo has to offer.
