    Definitely this model will act as sustainable way of employment generation.Nature based employment generation can be replicated in other sector also.This the field which adds the values to the nature in monetary without harming the nature.It will help in increasing the number of nature lover people , this will ultimately translate into more people speaking in the favor of noble result of conserving the nature.
    But there should be caution that no harm is inflicted upon the flora and fauna of the region in which bird watching is being organised.No waste like plastic rapper or bottles should be added into the ecosystem during either trekking or bird watching because people generally carry food-stuff and drinks during these drive and they just throw waste in that ecosystem . so they should ensure that this kind un eco-friendly things not being done.

  • Success of creating

    Success of creating employment opportunities through birdwatching camps depends on the participation of local people in such camps. Apart from inviting local people to birdwatching camps, we should try to reach local people in their villages. I have seen children have more enthusiasm for bird and show strong curiosity to learn about wildlife. If each trainer could spend one day in a local school during birdwatching camps, we will certainly able to create awareness about biodiversity conservation among children. May be, some of children could become future trainer to guide others at local level and successfully run birdwatching tours on their own.
