This virtual program is free, but you must register at https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMoceqspjktE9zF0lQO5qIoLyes8M0fdYwD to participate.
Speaker: Paul Baicich, conservationist and Bird Watcher’s Digest contributing author.
“Birding and Beyond in Cuba” will allow us to virtually “visit” a number of key bird-locations on the island – Viñales, Zapata, Guanahacabibes, Cayo Coco, Baracoa, Topes de Collantes, and Havana – as well as examine opportunities for connecting with our counterparts in Cuba. We will look at these fascinating birds, places, and people in terms of advancing bird-education, conservation, and responsible eco-tourism. Our presenter wishes to convey to you some of the birds, nature, and potential on the island, opportunities that can be found at one of our country’s closest neighbors.
Paul J. Baicich has been an active birder since his early teens in New York City. His concerns include an interest in bird conservation and policy, as well as studies in avian breeding biology, waterfowl, and the practice of bird feeding over the decades. Among his many activities, he worked for the American Birding Association in multiple roles, has worked for the National Wildlife Refuge System on a consultant basis on issues of popular birding and parallel refuge receptiveness, and has led (or co-led) trips from Alaska to Cuba. In addition, Paul co-edits (with Wayne Petersen) the popular monthly Birding Community E-bulletin and writes a regular column, “Quick Takes,” for Bird Watcher’s Digest. In 2014, Paul received the Ducks Unlimited “Wetland Conservation Achievement Award” in the category of Communications.
