CONSERVATION

piculet birding tour colombia | Colombia Birding Tours

Our birding Tours have brought and will continue bringing income to several conservation NGOs like ProAves. By staying at ProAves Reserves we have been supporting their efforts to protect the forests of the  Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Perijá Mountains, and other important sites for endangered biodiversity. We have supported community engagement projects that raise awareness and conservation of birds like Montezuma Rainforest, Yarumo Blanco at Otun Quimbaya, Alas Putumayo at Mocoa, and many more. Every time you travel with us, you are helping the amazing birds you see. PICULET BIRDING  has a strong commitment to conservation, so a minimum of USD $50 from each PICULET BIRDING registration will go directly to Colombian Conservation NGOs (starting in July 2018). Our goal is to positively impact bird populations and species diversity in Colombia, by supporting a variety of conservation efforts, from habitat preservation to captive breeding of endangered species, and population  research. PICULET BIRDING will start contributing this year, 2018, to the following Colombian conservation organizations (You can see on each tour page which of these organizations we will be helping):
