CCB and Birdlife Botswana are key collaborators in environmental conservation issues and as such, they celebrated the World Migratory Bird Day for the year 2014 in Jwaneng. The objectives were to raise awareness and promote conservation of birds especially migratory species, to develop an interest and knowledge of birds among children, including orphans, the disabled and those affected by HIV/AIDS, and to promote Botswana’s indigenous knowledge on conservation at grassroots level. The theme for the event was “Destination Flyways: Migratory Birds and Tourism”. This was to showcase the different ways in which humans and birds are connected and how they can benefit from each other without causing harm or depletion to the other. Relationships were strengthened between CCB and Birdlife Botswana as well as teachers and students of Jwaneng and surrounding areas.
