Annual Christmas Bird Count in Costa Rica

At Rainforest Adventures Costa Rica, the Annual Christmas Bird Count event brings a hundred ornithologists, tour guides, and bird enthusiasts around the world in order to have an adventure in the rain forests of Costa Rica, while they identify the new bird species in the area. This data also helps in illustrating the behavior of migratory bird species. In the Americas, this is one of the most important educational and scientific events since aside from bringing together about 50,000 bird watching aficionados in 2,000 spots in the Americas, the event also stress the importance of preservation.

The National Audubon Society, an organization which aims “to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity,” has been organizing the Annual Christmas Bird Count for years. This tradition started way back to 1900, when ornithologist Frank Chapman called to end the shooting of birds that took place during the holidays, and suggested that instead of hunting them, people should meet to count them.

At Rainforest Adventures, the species of plants in our parks that serve as food and shelter for the birds provide a sustainable habitat in which to stay. The Annual Christmas Bird Count event started December 21 on the Atlantic park and on December 27 on the Pacific park.

Together with the Union de Ornitologos de Costa Rica, we are pleased to invite you at the Pacific park to be part of this annual international event organized by the Audubon Society.
