The current discussion reminds me of a recent trip to South Africa where we 
hired Themba at St Lucia for a days guiding. That day was so good it turned 
into 2 days.
Being a local and committed to raising the awareness of the locals to the value 
of their bird populations he took us onto what was probably "traditional" land 
that we could not have accessed with out his influence. It cost only a little 
to have the locals look after the car and coming across machete wielding locals 
with big smiles as well as some fantastic birds gave us an insight into the 
value getting the locals involved in appreciating and using their natural 
resources. It is great to see local birdos in their element.
Cheers  Chris
