The Wonders of Wildsumaco Wildlife Sanctuary in Ecuador: Dr. Vanderhoff, Ph.D

Wildsumaco Wildlife Sanctuary lies on the eastern slope of the Andes in Ecuador and is home to nearly 500 species of birds. This mid-elevation site offers a high diversity of not only birds, but also insects, mammals and herpetofauna.

Since 2008 researchers have studied this diversity using a variety of methods, including camera trapping. Dr. Vanderhoff of Jacksonville University will give a presentation on the diversity and conservation of this unique region, sharing photos and discussing the importance of birders for conservation.
