The Secretariat of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT), the National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP) and the Pedro y Elena Hernández A.C. Foundation, carried out the 2018 ringing campaign in the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve.
Thanks to the identification rings, birds can be monitored throughout the protected areas of Mexico and other Caribbean reserves.
This year the reproductive colony achieved the goal of 11,824 fledglings or chicks that are ready to fly and feed themselves. From this population, it was possible to ring 580 birds, with the support of 55 technicians and 66 volunteers, to add to the 5,973 specimens already registered in the study.
The National Commissioner, Alejandro del Mazo Maza pointed out that, thanks to the ringing and monitoring program of the Flamenco del Caribe (Caribbean Flamingo), it is possible to determine that the same population of this species travels between Mexico and Cuba.
The Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve is, together with the Ría Máximo Wildlife Refuge in Cuba, the most important breeding colony for the recovery of the species. The protection of the Flamenco del Caribe and its nesting areas helps to protect more than 715 species of flora and 661 species of fauna in the Ría Lagartos Biosphere Reserve.
