Within the framework of the Second National Meeting of the Urban Birds Program (PAU), organized by the National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity (Conabio), which will be hosted in Cozumel from October 12 to 14, the Parks and Recreation Foundation Museums organizes the “Avifauna” Environmental Fair.
Cozumel is a site of great importance for the conservation of birds, since in this place there are three endemic species and 16 subspecies, according to Barbara Mackinnon, a birdwatching specialist and author of the guidebook “Sal a pajarear”.
The fair that will be held at Parque Juarez will start on October 13. Ángel Rafael Chacón Díaz, Director of Conservation and Environmental Education (CEA) of the Parks and Museums Foundation of Cozumel, invited the local population and tourists visiting the island to participate in the environmental fair on birds from 5 pm to 8 pm.
There will be information on bird species from the places where the workshop participants reside during the PAU meeting.
“We’re talking about specialists that come from the United States, Belize, Guatemala and Venezuela. It is expected the participation of more than 100 bird lovers, from 34 cities out of 17 states in Mexico”, added CEA’s project coordinator, Paulina Abigaíl Sabido Villanueva.
