For this task, we are seeking volunteers to help us find examples of successful ecotourism projects and organizations that provide support (financial or otherwise) to promote the development of ecotourism projects such as ours.

"...the members of EOL wish to have an exchange visit to other conservacies ,do you or any body have an idea where they can get funding to do this?"

The straight answer to the question is No I dont.

How much funding are you talking? What is it to cover? Accommodation, transportation for the EOL members?

Your Plan document talks of management by the KWS. Have you approached them yet? Would only be involved in the conservation plains of the Northeast Parts?

Hi Tom!

Welcome to Nabuur! It's great to see more people from the USA joining to volunteer.

The resources you posted are fantastic. I really like the compilation of success stories in one place, that certainly makes things easier. I also liked the description of ecotourism-it sets a good foundation for learning more about the basics.

We'd like to invite you to join the village as a volunteer. Please also feel free to introduce yourself to the rest of the volunteer team. We're a small group right now, but hopefully growing soon.

Thanks again for your contributions! Let us know if you have any questions about the project or Nabuur as a whole.

Kind regards-

Jennifer
