Training local talent on birds and butterfly guiding

Birdguide Training

The aim of this programme is to train (in the first phase) 100 Naga youth as bird and butterfly watching guides, to meet the growing demand for such guides, and to provide these prospective candidates with alternate employment. In the long run, we would like to start ‘Bird clubs’ in each of the 11 districts in Nagaland. Other than providing employment, the trained candidates will become stakeholders in the forests and environment and will prevent their wanton destruction as is the case today.
