Project Description

In the southeast of the Baja California Peninsula are a series of oases, including El Salto, Primer and Segundo Bosque (to the south of the Giganta mountain range). These habitats are located in the arid region of the Peninsula. We observed a high bird species richness that includes resident and migratory species, including endemics such as Xantus's Hummingbird, Gray Thrasher, and Belding's Yellowthroat. The objective of this project is to qualitatively and quantitatively describe the bird population of these oases, promoting the interest of the local community through talks and avitourism training. Specific activities include: (1) give talks to young people in local communities to promote interest in bird conservation in the region; (2) conduct monitoring to describe the bird community of the oases; and (3) implement a birdwatching course and form a local bird club to promote bird observation and bird and habitat conservation.
