Birds and Beyond in Cuba
November 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Monthly Meeting via Zoom
Speaker: Paul Baicich, Bird Conservationist, and co-author of numerous books, including the popular monthly Birding Community E-Bulletin.
Paul will introduce us to a number of key natural and bird-filled locations in Cuba – Viñales, Zapata, Guanahacabibes, Cayo Coco, Baracoa, Topes de Collantes, and Havana. But just as importantly, we will examine opportunities for “connecting” with our counterparts in Cuba. This is particularly important since Cuba contains 28 Important Bird Areas (IBAs), with over 370 bird species recorded on the island. Of these 370 species, 27 are endemic to the island, and 29 are considered globally threatened. We will look at these fascinating birds, places, and people in terms of advancing bird-education, conservation, and responsible eco-tourism.
