Selecting CBT Priorities

At least 40 SCSCB attendees participated in yesterday’s Caribbean Birding Trail (CBT) workshop in Freeport, Bahamas. The group spent the entire afternoon working through the details of how the CBT will move forward to implementation. The group developed priorities in six general areas of interest, as follows:

Infrastructure
Communications & Marketing
Economics & Sustainability
Recreational Programming
Engagement & Education
Environment & Restoration

In the next several weeks we will be posting additional information from the workshop, including a list of the priorities set by the work group. For now, however, it is critical that we enroll our key partners and supporters in the effort. Please consider becoming a partner by completing the form that is posted on the right sidebar of this blog. Also, take a look at the nomination form in this blog where places can be submitted to the CBT.

The important news to come from the workshop is that we are moving ahead, and plan to complete the initial inventory of CBT sites in the next several months. In addition, we will be developing a strategic plan for the CBT that includes all of the suggestions that surfaced during the workshop.

The CBT is the most ambitious birding trail ever attempted, spanning nearly 2000 miles, hundreds of islands, dozens of cultures, and at least four major languages. Although daunting, the enthusiasm and dedication of our partners insures that the trail will be supremely successful. Join us!
