In its continued initiatives to support and work with journalists who have exhibited passion for tourism reporting, the management of the Uganda Wildlife Authority has offered free gorilla tracking permits to the two winners of the Sustainable Tourism Media awards in the print and Television category.

The offers will go to Gerald Tenywa of the New Vision and Craig Kadoda of Nation TV. Announcing the offers during the second Sustainable Tourism Media awards on September 16, 2011 at Kampala Serena Hotel, the Chief Executive Officer of UWA, Dr. Andrew Ggunga Seguya observed that the authority is very supportive of efforts to encourage journalists in their work, and has over the years worked closely with various media organisations to promote tourism and wildlife management in the country. He urged the winning journalists to take advantage this opportunity to experience the tourism attractions first hand and subsequently provide visibility for the parks.

The acting Executive Director also appreciated the frequency of reporting on tourism related stories both in the print and broadcast media and pledged continued support to the Tourism Media awards.”We do appreciate the building of awareness and creation of interest in our national heritage. As you are aware, tourism in Uganda is largely nature based,” Dr. Seguya said .
