The moment Isolde Venter from Trip Travel, one of the oldest travel agencies in Namibia, contacted BirdsConTour to guide an organized tour, she didn’t know how much she would get involved in conservation.

Travel slogan - “Live to Travel”
After BirdsConTOUR, the tourism division of BirdsconTour, successfully guided this fantastic tour, BirdsConTour surprised Isolde with a one penguin-rated Bird & Birder Friendly Award, a project by the BirdsConTour Aiding Wings program. Aiding Wings works to motivate people and to improve the lives of people, ultimately to generate a nature conservation conscious community. BirdsConTour believes that only an informed and a content society can indulge in sustainable nature conservation.The reason for rewarding Mrs. Venter lies hidden in the objective. The main objective of the BirdsConTOUR (tourism) program is to generate funds for conservation projects. Therefore does any person or company that makes use of BirdsConTour, in this situation Isolde Venter from Trip Travel, contribute to conservation because money is received. These funds support BirdsConTour in its endeavors to conserve nature. THANK YOU and CONGRATULATIONS to Isolde! All awardees are listed in the electronic BirdsConTour newsletter Birds in Words (www.birdscontour.blogspot.com), article 71.
