To strengthen our environmental education and bird conservation program on the Island of San Andrés, ProAves joined the Caribbean Endemic Birds Festival which was celebrated in 23 countries.
The event was organized at the regional level by the Sociedad para la Conservación y el Estudio de las Aves Caribeñas, becoming the sixth annual celebration. The festival took place May 2 – 25 in San Andrés. The Festival was thanks to ProAves, the National University of Colombia-San Andrés and Coralina.
Sixth Caribbean Endemic Birds Festival.
From ProAves, the biologist Andrea Pacheco coordinated environmental education activities such as painting, origami, and observations which show the importance of the endemic species of the island, the Vireo of San Andrés (Vireo caribaeus).
The event has the support of numerous institutions including Partners in Flight, National Wildlife Federation and the Puerto Rican Ornithological Society.
