One of the main objective of the festival is to encourage and promote research and conservation projects. That’s why the profit obtained from the tickets selling is intended to this kind of projects. Over the editions, we already raised the total amount of 23.000 euros! So, visitors are relevant to all these projects get funded. We count on you to help nature!
2021 Project: the Daasanach’s birdwatchers
This 2021, for the first time in the short history of this festival, we will support a project that is taking place on another continent, specifically on the shores of Lake Turkana, in the northeast of Kenya, Africa.
The project named “Promoting birds fans at the Daasanach tribe in Africa, by giving them the tools they need“, pretend collaborate with the members of the Daasanach tribe with the aim of deepen the knowledge of the ornithological wealth of the region and the possible development as an ecotourism destination. That’s why they created the Ileret ornithological club with the tribe members.
Once the seventh edition of the Delta Birding Festival is over, the organization has donated the profits obtained from the sale of the tickets. This together with the donation made by the Barcelona’s Zoo, will allow the publication of the first field guide of birds and other fauna for the Daasanach, written in their language. So that it becomes a basic tool for learning and the collaboration of its members.
Also, we would like to thank everyone who has donated material. We have already collected more than 50 binoculars, 3 telescopes and some smartphones that will be very useful to the Daasanach tribe in their field observations.
One again we made it possible, thank you all!
