An inspirational Birdlife Talk on 24 November 2023
Mukuvisi Woodlands hosted an informative and inspirational presentation by Julia Pierini of Birdlife Zimbabwe on 24 November. She spoke about how birds are an indicator of the health of a nation, describing how urbanisation and the sprawl of development pushes normally resident birds farther and farther afield - away from their natural habitat - and habitat is forever changed and destroyed.

Agriculture affects bird populations through chemical crop preservation, and the drive for a greater yield, if no consideration is given to the natural food chain, will ultimately affect the preservation of species or even lead to their possible extinction. Climate change is affecting bird populations and annual migrations and no one is paying attention to the bird barometer of ultimately life on the planet. Bird Life Zimbabwe runs a university attachment programme.

Their current group of successful and passionate young people want desperately to help make a change - to their lives and to the lives of the nation. The BirdLife report back on research being done on breeding pairs of Black Stork at Sebakwe Poort and Secretary Birds on the grasslands of Driefontein was inspirational.

On 11 November 2023, Mukuvisi once again proudly hosted the annual Run-Walk for Elephants which is an event taking place across the globe in many venues, to raise money for the Zambezi Elephant Fund.

This year, Triathlon Zimbabwe was also involved. Entry fees went towards ZimTri tours while donations were collected for the Zambezi Elephant Fund.

Enjoy just a few pictures of this fun, vibrant event, which was thoroughly enjoyed by participants of all ages, who immersed themselves in the beauty of our Woodlands.
