Bird Club – BirdLife eThekwini KZN

More about the bird club:

Birdlife eThekwini KZN was established in Durban in 1949 as the Natal Bird Club and as such is one of the oldest bird clubs in Africa. As an affiliate club Birdlife eThekwini KZN, shares the goals of BLSA as they relate to conservation of birds and habitats within KZN and therefore the club plays an important role in conservation, as well as influencing various aspects of birding in KZN and southern Africa.

The club offers around 80 activities per year free to members and also open to visitors with a donation to our conservation fund. The monthly activities have been restructured a little so that people know what sort of outing it is going to be – this means we now have some of our usual activities labelled and branded with an icon so Walks, Sit-Ins still occur but we also have Weekends Away, Day Tripping, Let’s Chat Birds & Birding online and field training sessions, Guest Presentations and much larger Events which are individually named or labelled according to the theme or reason for the event.

We have recently developed a BeKZN Fledglings youth focussed section of the club to cater for 6 – 16 year olds.
