Hi all
Several years ago I suggested to Tourism NT that they create a data base of
people not working in tourism, but who had expertise of interest to
visitors.  For example, I knew a lady in her eighties who was an authority
on native orchids and several Indigenous people who were willing to spend an
hour or two talking to visitors.  And there were people who worked
occasionally as guides, for example several of the scientists I knew.

I also suggested to Tourism NT that they examine the feasibility of covering
the public liability insurance of such people, perhaps by forming an
organisation they could join.  As vice-chair of Wildlife Tourism Australia,
I¹m interested in raising this again.  Are any Birding Aussers interested in
this topic?  If so, I¹d love to hear from you.
