Familiar Chat Back Issues-June 2011
Its a bitterly cold, unseasonably wet morning as I write this, making me think of global warming and the climate changes being experienced around the world. To keep a finger on the pulse of what is happening in Botswana’s bird world, please read Keddy’s report on page 5 and heed BLB’s plea to add your contribution to Bird Population Monitoring. Kabo Ditshane’s real life piece on page 4 tells us what birds meant to him as a small boy growing up in a village. It is thoughtprovoking and utterly honest.
The articles on pages 2 and 8 reflect the growing interaction of BLB with children and rural communities - a good reflection of BLB’s core work. Keep warm & cheers ’til spring.
