The Birds of Cuba plus Impressions of National Audubon Environmental Camp

Cuba is a globally important place for birds.  More than 100 North American species will rest and feed on the island during migration and 26 species are endemic.  Viable habitat is still available interspersed across the island but how long can it be sustained?  The science of ornithology in Cuba lacks manpower and resources.  Adequate protection for threatened species is a source of concern and American foreign policy restricts access by our own ornithologists.

Seminole Audubon president Faith Jones was able to visit the island in 2013 and will present images of some of the 167 avian species she observed including 24 that are not seen anywhere else.  A great opportunity to see these colorful, tropical birds and hear Faith's impressions concerning the conservation of this important migratory stopover!

National Audubon Camp:

In the second portion of the program Faith will relate some of the interesting information learned while attending Audubon’s Hog Island Field Ornithology Camp in Muscongus Bay, Maine.  Since 1936, the Audubon Camp has offered environmental education programs for adults, teens, families and conservation leaders.

    I was born in Cuba, but left when I was very young. I really loved the presentation, and hope someday I will be able to see those lovely birds for myself. Thank you for those wonderful images!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
