Please help us collect old binoculars for a good cause in Africa!
This year at Birdfair, the Osprey Project Stand will be holding a collection of old, unwanted binoculars! These binoculars are being collected for a school in Uganda that is setting up a forest school to teach the children about the wildlife on their doorstep. The use of equipment such as binoculars will help to get them interested in the flora and fauna so that some may take up a career in wildlife for tourism and conservation. The school is located near to chimp forests and is not far from mountain gorillas, and there is also a small population of migratory ospreys at the local crater lakes!
There is also a local college course aimed at training young adults to be Wildlife Support Officers and Tourist Guides and Rangers. The use of binoculars will also be a great help to students on this course.
If you have any unwanted binoculars please bring them to the Osprey Project Stand at the Birdfair, there will be a bin there to collect them. You will find us in Outdoor Displays (see map below).
Many thanks in advance for your help!
