In 2012, KBO had a motivated and professional group of banding interns. We are proud of their hard work and accomplishments, and we wish them well as they go forth into the world of bird conservation. Seven of our banders achieved certification from the North American Banding Council at the Bander level, and three of these went on to achieve the rigorous Trainer certification.
