Gambia Bird Guides Association


Lamin Camara is a member of The Gambia Bird Guide Association 

The BGA is an organisation representing ornithologists which was founded in 2006. The association has been legally formalised, and registered with the Gambia Tourism Authority.

Some of the clauses of their constitution means that the bird guides have made a commitment to Gambian conservation, allowing financing to be spent on  community projects around the country. Each project will have a professional bird guide as the Project Manager who will liaise with the village Alkalo (chief) to ensure successful management of each individual community project.
