‘The provision of a vulture viewing hide will
not only raise awareness of the plight of the Cape Vulture, but also be a huge
asset to the local tourist trade. We anticipate the hide being used not only by
locals, but also attracting visitors nationally and internationally.’ Said Andy
Ruffle, Birdlife Trogons Bird Club Chairman.
The Trogons have launched a Vulture
Hide Project Fund to finance the construction of the hide and appeal to
corporates and individuals to assist with this very worthwhile project.
Anyone wishing to make a donation or to offer
any other assistance, is asked to contact Andy Ruffle on 039 695 0829 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘This is a very exciting time for Trogons. To
see the ribbon cut during an opening ceremony will be an extremely proud moment
for us.’ Commented Andy Ruffle.
