October 2017 meeting

Tue, October 3, 7:30 – 9:00 pm
Blue Spruce County Park
Speaker: Ian Gardner

Description

Ian Gardner will take us to Honduras on the CACAO 2017 Expedition. After participating in Juniata Valley Audubon’s Birding for Conservation trip to Honduras in February 2016, he organized this second trip.

Cacao is the Honduran colloquial name for the threatened Red-throated Caracara, a raptor that has nearly disappeared from Central America in the past few decades. It is also the acronym for a small but passionate cooperative of multi-national conservationists. The group traveled on a research expedition to two locations in the remote eastern portion of the country, Reserva Biologica Rus Rus in Gracias a Dios and Parque Nacional Botaderos in Olancho. Their goals were to work with local conservation pioneers and preserves to survey and promote the wide diversity of bird life in these special yet threatened regions. Come to learn more about this important research initiative and the amazing diversity of habitats and the birds they found while there.
