17 August, 2017

On 13th 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 migration and habitats of birds. Internationally, Global Big Day had its greatest participation, with almost 20,000 people registering 6,545 bird species. In Talara, the day was a great success, with our team registering a total of 37 species. Within these 37 species, including 4 species of endemic birds which are a high priority for conservation. These included Geositta peruvianaTumbezia salviniMyiarchus semirufus and Piezorina cinérea. Through recording this information, we have been able to continue raising awareness of the importance of dry forest conservation for endemic birds.
