Caribbean Birding Trail to Begin Work in the DR and Jamaica

We are pleased to share the good news that the Society for the Conservation and Study of Caribbean Birds has received a grant from the Critical Ecosystems Partnership Fund to begin implementing the Caribbean Birding Trail project! The grant allows us to begin work in five Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) in two pilot countries, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

By starting with just a few sites we will begin to build a regional framework that will support the future inclusion of other KBAs. Key aspects of this work entails building local support for the Caribbean Birding Trail (CBT), assessing resources and feasibility, and developing an interpretive plan for each KBA. These plans are crucial for upholding our “low impact, high yield” philosophy, and will be important for creating sustainable tourism and livelihood opportunities for local communities living in and around these areas.

This summer, members of the CBT project team will travel to the Dominican Republic and Jamaica to meet with stakeholders and to assess existing resources for bird and nature tourism. We look forward to sharing with you the results of our trips!
