Hi all,
Trogons can now proudly announce the launch to raise funds to erect a Vulture Viewing Hide
at Oribi. The hide will be named ‘The Barry Porter Memorial Hide’ after our late chairman.
Please see the Press Release below and forward to all your rich friends:):):)
Mon 18th February 2013
Birdlife Trogons Bird Club today announced plans to erect a Vulture Viewing Hide at Oribi.
‘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 contribution or to offer any other assistance, is asked to contact Andy Ruffle on 039 695 0829 or email
‘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.
