Birding Beyond Borders
Klamath Bird Observatory (KBO) presents Birding Beyond Borders in partnership with Mantiqueira Bird Observatory (OAMa). This evening will feature a presentation by Shannon Rio, KBO board president, celebrating KBO, birds, scientists, conservationists, and people from all over the globe. She will be showing two short videos about KBO’s international work. Highlighting the value of diversity in all aspects that nature provides us: diversity of landscape, people, and culture.
Luiza Figueira, past KBO intern and Executive Director of OAMa, will talk about the development of the bird observatory in Brazil, their research and outreach projects to promote bird conservation. You will also be led through a diversity of local birds and will “walk” the trails in the tropical forests where OAMa does the long-term bird monitoring. We will have the opportunity for a low-key chat with the OAMa crew to ask any questions you have about their work. This presentation is part of OAMa’s fundraising campaign for their 2022 projects and activities, and you are invited to join their collective efforts.
The free online presentation is on February 24th, 6 pm – 7 pm PT. The zoom link will be emailed to you once you have registered.
