I have attended various training courses workshops,Glendower Soutpansberg Birds and Forest festival for the past five years;Limpopo Bird Guides Practical Workshops and Raptor ID courses.

I also played a role in establishing the annual Limpopo Forest Birding festival…now on its 7th year as well as assisted in the establishment of various birding Hotspots such as Roodewal Reserve,Muirhead dams and recently Thohoyandou Botanical Garden and Tshivhazwa Dam.

Birdlife SA Owl Award 2012
Samson Mulaudzi took the initiative to embark on an educational programme in the northern reaches of Limpopo after a trip to Sagole to see the Mottled Spinetails made it clear that children were knocking down the Spinetail nests for the eggs and chicks. Samson has gone from school to school, educating the children in the area about the importance of these birds, why we should value all of our birds and animals, as well as showing them that it is possible to make a career out of caring for our birds. Samson  has managed to inspire a generation of children to think about their avian resources in a different way and to become young conservators. This programme, coupled with their ‘Birds in Trees’ project which couples educational visits with planting trees at schools, and his valuable research into Limpopo’s important birds, makes him worthy of this award.
