San Pancho Bird Observatory
Observatorio de Aves de San Pancho (SPBO—San Pancho Bird Observatory) is a non-profit, non-advocacy organization based in San Pancho on the coast of southern Nayarit, Mexico. SPBO is dedicated to bird and habitat conservation in the region and uses an
approach to conservation based on the integration of bird population monitoring, education, and ecotourism programs. SPBO partners with the San Pancho Birding Club in many local community and school education programs.
The KBO-SPBO partnership was forged when Luis Morales, SPBO’s founder and Director and successful biologist and nature guide, trained with KBO in bird banding techniques and bird observatory management through our international capacity building program. Ongoing collaborations include a Yellow-breasted Chat full life cycle study—a tri-national project with Environment and Climate Change Canada and University of British Columbia.
