Annual BirdLife Botswana dinner

The annual BirdLife Botswana dinner will be on Saturday 25th September at 19:00 for 19:30 at the Gaborone Golf Club.

The guest speaker will be Mark Anderson, Director of BirdLife South Africa, speaking on the Lesser Flamingo project at Kamfers Dam near Kimberly, where he and colleagues managed to create an artificial island that was successfully adopted by the flamingos as the fourth breeding site for the species in Africa! This is a truly wonderful conservation achievement, but one which cost him his previous job!

Dress will be smart casual with a cost of P150 per ticket and all members are invited to attend. It should be an excellent affair and is one of the main events on our calendar. Members should buy their tickets early to avoid disappointment. They are on sale at the BLB Office in Kgale Siding and at the shop in the Craft Market, Broadhurst. There will be eight people to a table so you may reserve your table when purchasing your tickets. We have 80 tickets to sell on a first-come-first-served basis.
