Shoebill-Watch Uganda is a non-profit organisation majorly aimed at the wellbeing of the Shoebill and other birds while protecting and restoring their habitats. We carry out research on the Shoebill, other birds as well as their habitats and use the information generated to influence policies that affect the biodiversity and environment at large.
Shoebill-Watch Uganda also aims at advocating for protection of the Shoebill, other birds and their habitats. Birds’ contribution in the ecosystem is very vital as they predict events, act as pollinators, predators, prey and scavengers etc. Birds are a source of revenue and livelihoods to the government and people through avi-tourism. Bird watching is the fastest growing niche in Uganda bringing in revenue to the government as well as providing employment opportunities to many people both locals and international.
This therefore calls for conservation of the Shoebill, an iconic species, other birds and their habitats to ensure sustainable development.
