Bird Watching Training Conducted By TAAN

Posted by:  | Date: January 14, 2016

A two-day 'Bird Watching Training for Trekking Guides' kicked off at Trekking Agencies' Association of Nepal (TAAN) Secretariat on Tuesday.

The training is being organized by Trekking Agencies' Association of Nepal (TAAN) with technical support of Bird Conservation Nepal (BCN). Altogether 30 trekking guides associated with TAAN member agencies are participating in the training.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Karna Bahadur Lama, general secretary of TAAN, said the training is being organized to enhance professionalism of trekking workers. "As bird watching is a specialized activity, we are hopeful that the training will enable our trekking guides to handle specialized groups," Lama said. "We will continue to organize different trainings and skills enrichment programs for trekking entrepreneurs and trekking guides in the future as well."

Similarly, Dr Narendra Man Babu Pradhan, CEO of BCN, said BCN was happy to partner with TAAN to impact bird watching skills and techniques on trekking guides. "But training alone won't help bird watching is all about passion," he said. "I am hopeful that the training will be fruitful to you."

Similarly, Shital Chandra Dharel, coordinator of Training & Human Resources Department of TAAN, said TAAN will organize different training programs to enrich professionalism of trekking entrepreneurs as well as workers employed by its member agencies.

The training will have sessions on Status and Importance of Nepal's Birds, Ecotoursim & Opportunity of Birdwatching Tourism in Nepal, Bird Identification Techniques, Code of Conduct for Bird Watchers, Bird Watching Sites in Nepal and Government Rules & Regulations. There will also be a half-day bird watching trip in Nagarjun forest.
