Webinar: Bird Migration in Latin American 9/8/20

Bird Migration Through Different Lenses
Webinar: Thursday, October 8 at 9 am Pacific Time

In honor of World Migratory Bird Day and Latinx Heritage Month, join us for a bilingual webinar on migratory bird conservation across the Western Hemisphere. Learn how on-the-ground efforts are giving a voice to the birds; and how the birds in turn can give a voice to local communities.

The U.S. traditionally celebrates World Migratory Bird Day in May, but across Latin America, the celebration starts in October as millions of migratory birds make their way down to the tropical rainforests, savanna grasslands, montane Andean ecosystems, mangrove swamps, and other rich habitat types that sustain these birds outside of their northern breeding grounds. This momentous day also takes place as the United States honors Latinx Heritage Month, a month dedicated to celebrating the many contributions, diverse cultures, and extensive history of the Latinx community—one closely linked to tales of migration.

Joining us will be Karolina Fierro from Asociacion Calidris, Camila Gomez from Fundación Selva, environmentalist and conservation leader in Colombia Narli Aldana, and the Executive Director of Panama Audubon Society Rosabel Miró. Register today and join us in celebrating the joy of migration and Latinx culture!
