The Ivory-billed Woodpecker, has been considered extinct
in the U.S. since 1938. The IBW also lived in Cuba but
there it was last seen as recently as 2009, making its
continued existence in Cuba more probable. In May 2012,
the Western Alliance for Nature sponsored an initial
exploration of an area in eastern Cuba where it was last
seen. Come hear about the quite promising results and
why we have been inspired to launch a series of full scale
scientific expeditions. Our expeditions will also seek to
gather data on the following globally threatened birds, all
of which are known to occur in the localities that we plan
to survey: the Critically Endangered Cuban Kite, the
Endangered Giant Kingbird and the Blue-headed QuailDove
and the Near Threatened Bee Hummingbird.
