So, grab your birding equipment and come out to Colombia for some fantastic birdwatching, nature activities and support the conservation projects in a country with the leading biodiversity in the world.
With funds from our Birding tour and donations we work in a few areas in Colombia where there is a tremendous diversity of plants and animals (including a high diversity of endemic bird species).
First Project: Assessment and Conservation of Threatened Bird Species at Colombia
Two fieldwork strategies will be used: “En bloc-Assessment” to produce an avifauna census and ecological assessments, to explore environment problems and possible solutions through community approach; “Special Survey” to assess the conservation status of some threatened endemic bird species. Socio-economic conditions will be assessed through paticipatory survey. Obtained data will be used to underpin a Community Outreach Program and Conservation Action Plan.
Our project has the focus with this species:
- Cundinamarca antpitta (Grallaria kaestneri)
- Colombian mountain grackle (Macroagelaius subalaris)
- Niceforo’s wren (Thryophilus nicefori)
- Chestnut bellied hummingbird (Amazilia castaneiventris)
Second project: Action of the Bat Species at Soatá
The main objective of this project is to promote the conservation of bats in the Soatá Reserve to determine the species diversity and population structure, assessment of the main threats to the population of bats, making recommendations for conservation, develop a database for the populations of bats and encourage greater community awareness about the bat conservation needs.
