Conservation through Appreciation: Birds as Winged Ambassadors for Caribbean Conservation

Principal Investigator(s):

Lisa G. Sorenson, PhD

Institution:

President, Society for the Conservation and Study of Caribbean Birds (SCSCB)

Project Term:

2009 - 2010

Conservation of nature begins with education—an understanding and awareness of our dependence on intact ecosystems and an appreciation for the many values of biodiversity. We proposed to build on two very successful outreach and education programs of the SCSCB and continuing development of a third education program on migratory birds. The overall goal of these projects is to increase awareness and appreciation of the Caribbean’s unique and diverse bird life and the important habitat upon which these birds and human societies depend through our outreach and education programs. Our primary objective with this proposal was to develop new outreach materials that will help organizations across the region to raise awareness about the value of birds – both residents and migrants, and the importance of habitat conservation.
