In Talara we participated in Global Big Day and registered 37 species of birds!
This year, on 13 May our team in Talara participated, for the third-year running in Global Big Day, a global initiative that seeks to promote research into the patterns of migration and habitats of birds. Global Big Day on at an international level had its biggest reach, with almost 20,000 people participating, and registered 6,545 species. In Talara, the day was also a great success, as we registered a total of 37 species. Within these 37 species, we registered 4 species of endemic birds which are a high priority for conservation. The species of birds endemic to the region registered included Geositta peruviana, Tumbezia salvini, Myiarchus semirufus and Piezorina cinérea. Through systematizing this information, we are able to continue raising awareness of the importance of conserving the habitat of the endemic birds.
