World Migratory Bird Day with the Kakamega Environmental Education Programme

The Kakamega Environmental Volunteers, a site support group working with Nature Kenya (the BirdLife partner in Kenya), will organise a number of events to commemorate WMBD on Saturday, 10th May 2008.
A morning bird watching session starting at 7 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. involving 400 pupils from the surrounding schools and community members. Other interested birdwatchers are welcome to join us. This will be followed by discussions on 'How do birds prepare to migrate'? by John Luseno and Leonard Likhotio.
One old man, Mzee Haroun Shilabika, will give a historical account of bird migration from the old days and the beliefs associated with this unique phenomenon.
Lastly, there will be a conservation film for general viewing.
