It is still 2022, but we are planning for 2023! In April, KBO will be traveling to Brazil to spend time with Mantiqueira Bird Observatory (OAMa) and their fantastic team, Luiza and Pedro. Join us for a 10-day trip exploring the beauty of the Brazilian cloud forests, seeing exotic birds, discussing bird conservation with scientists from Brazil and KBO, bird banding in action, and eating delicious food. By attending this trip, you are donating to the intern exchange program between KBO and OAMa. Your donation helps cover the cost of travel, visa fees, stipend, and much more for an intern.
The trip is taking place April 12th – 20th. The cost is $5000 per person; this includes hotels, food (breakfast, lunch, dinner), and transportation. The only thing not included is airfare from the US to Brazil. A $2500 deposit is required to reserve your seat. Of the $5000 fee, $2500 is a taxable donation.
You can view an itinerary of the trip HERE. Subject to change.
Luiza will be hosting a presentation on November 20th at 5 pm to showcase all the amazing this we will see and do in Brazil and about OAMa. She will also be available to answer any questions about the trip. This in-person hybrid presentation will be held at the KBO office in Ashland and online via Zoom.
