Participate in Christmas Bird Count 2016 at Vallarta Botanical Gardens

Would you like to make birding history in Puerto Vallarta and the Banderas Bay?

Public Christmas Bird Count participation in the Garden is welcome on Saturday, December 17 from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.

The Vallarta Botanical Garden is a regional leader in the world’s longest running and most significant citizen science project.

The Vallarta Botanical Garden is just one of dozens of amazing local birding hotspots within the count circle of the annual Puerto Vallarta / Bahía de Banderas Christmas Bird Count (CBC). This project, organized by the Audubon Society, is the longest running and most important citizen science project in the world.

Over 200 species have been counted within the Puerto Vallarta CBC in past events, but over 100 additional species are documented to occur at this time within our region. That means participants are so far only documenting about two-thirds of the avian diversity that abounds during the day of the count.

Additional prepared participants and a better coordination of efforts could result in placing Puerto Vallarta as a top contender for the number one CBC circle in North America. These efforts will not only boost the ecotourism appeal of Puerto Vallarta, but also serve to better document and protect our rich natural biodiversity. Interested?
