EcoTraining Birding in the Bush Course

20 February 2018 - 26 February 2018

The 7 days Birding in the Bush Course gets birding enthusiasts on their way to EcoTraining’s bush camps in prime wildlife areas and partake in wilderness walks or game drives twice a day. This course has been designed to broaden and enrich participants’ knowledge and skills by educating them about the fascinating world of birds. Although there are some lectures, it is very much a practical course, with hours spent out in the field to learn how to successfully identify birds by sight and sound. Topics you will learn on the course include: evolution, anatomy and physiology, habitats and environments, bird identification, bird behaviour and ethics. Contact EcoTraining for further details of the next course.

Raptor Course

22 February 2018 - 25 February 2019

SANParks Honorary Rangers Limpopo Region invite you to join leading birding expert and ecologist Joe Grosel on an exciting three day programme which introduces participants to a practical identification system whereby the entire region’s raptor species can be recognised. Apart from the identification aspect, interesting subjects relating to the life histories and ecology of each species is also covered. The event will take place in the Letaba Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park, which due to its locality, offers some of the best raptor viewing on the continent. Activities for the weekend will include morning and afternoon bird and game spotting drives on open game-viewing vehicles in the company of Joe Grosel and Park Rangers. All proceeds from the weekend will be for the Honorary Rangers Environmental Fund.
