Learning to Watch

After a short break, it’s time to go back to the Pantanal and Bonito. Once again, for nice reasons.

This weekend, just like last year, we will be making a presentation about birdwatching for the employees of MCR (a local mining company) in Corumbá, followed by a birding expedition through the wetlands. My main subject during the activities will be the natural soundscaspes. The activity will be done in partnership with BirdLife International.

From there we’ll follow on to Bonito, where we will teach a course about birding techniques for local guides. There were so many interested that we had to make a selection process! The course is being sponsored by more than 20 institutions from local, regional and national levels.

More soon!

Bom dia!

Encontrei nesse site a foto de uma beija-flor de gravata e gostaria de utilizá-la em uma matéria da Revista Ponto Con. Gostaria de saber se é possível e a quem devo atribuir os créditos, caso a utilização seja autorizada.
