Ignacio Yufera, a Spanish tourist, has pledged to auction Uganda  across the world. He will also have to ask for support to make bird-watching profession in Uganda.
Yufera, a member of the Emberiza Bird Club of Spain, first visited Uganda in 2005 as a tourist and has since made annual visits to the country.
Yufera ,not so long ago made a promise when the Uganda Bird Guides Club and the Emberiza Bird Club of Spain carried out a joint session training local bird guides about bird-watching at the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in south-western Uganda.
The fortnight course comprised of tourist guiding etiquette, Uganda tourism patterns and changes. Bird identification techniques, communication skill and conservation basic lessons were other topics handled during the training.
Alfred Twinomujuni, Hassan Mutebi and Johnnie Kamugisha, who is also the president of the Uganda Bird Guides Club, were the training coordinator who applauded Emberiza Bird Club for its help towards the promotion of bird-watching in the country.
Kamugisha appreciated Emberiza Bird Club for 20 pairs of binoculars given to them as fund, 20 birds of East Africa guide books and 20 mammals of Africa guidebooks.
The books were distributed to 20 Ugandan trainees upon completion of the course.
