Latin America Committee

School-house mural by Grupo Ecológico - Sierra Gorda, Mexico

Golden Gate Audubon’s Latin America Committee works to promote conservation and educational programs in Latin America that benefit birds and their habitats, in part by becoming actively involved ourselves, and in part by encouraging an ecotourism that benefits environmental protection and promotes cultural exchanges. The Latin America Committee meets periodically at members’ homes.

Recent and current projects include:

  • ¿Qué Vuela Ahí?, a book about 50 common birds of the Panama City region
  • Aves del Parque Nacional Sierra de Bahoruco, a laminated guide to the common birds of the Sierra de Bahoruco National Park, one of the most important national parks in the Dominican Republic
  • Aves de la Reserva Biosphera de la Sierra Gorda, a laminated guide to the common birds of the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve in Querétaro, Mexico.
  • Promotion of field trips and nature travel to Panama and other areas of Latin America
