New Hampshire Audubon Seacoast Chapter
Wednesday October 11, 2017 7:30 pm Program - A Tour of Ghana
Dana and Bob Fox will share adventures from their tour of Ghana, which is situated in the heart of West Africa. They found Ghana, the first sub-Saharan colonial country to gain its independence in 1957, to be a friendly, safe, and stable African destination. Once known as the Gold Coast, Ghana has a colorful and vibrant culture and a turbulent history, a coast lined with beautiful beaches and numerous forts, over 750 species of birds, a surprising number of large mammals, and an amazing array of butterflies. The charismatic Yellow-headed Picathartes with their bulky mudcup nests on an overhanging rock face deep in the forest was a favorite. They will show us Kakum National Park with its canopy walkway, Ankasa, a pristine wet-evergreen forest near the western border, the superb Mole National Park where they watched African Savanna Elephants from their hotel, the Burkina Faso border with its distinct family of birds, the amazing Egyptian Plover, and the Bobiri Butterfly Sanctuary's primary lowland forest. Come and learn more. .
