This offer will not last long, but it is the best deal for bird
and wildlife conservation in a long time, and you save a
$100 off any of our birding trips in the next 24 months.

Details:

  1. Donate $100 and Protect 200 Acres of
    Rainforest: You donate $100 to the Rainforest
    Trust’s Sierra del Divisor project.  For each $100
    you donate, they are currently able to purchase a
    conservation easement on 200 acres of rainforest
    in Peru.  This is 50 cents per acre.  
  2. Save $100 on PIB Birding Trip:  If you donate
    $100 to the Rainforest Trust’s Sierra del Divisor
    project, the Partnership for International Birding will
    give you $100 off any of our birding trips in the next
    24 months (ending in December in 2015).
  • The Partnership for International Birding
    (PIB) offers over 100 birding trips each year
    on six continents.  
  • We use premier local guides, and we often
    have some of the most productive birding
    trips you can find anywhere.  
  • Our prices are often 20% (and sometimes
    more) less than our competitors.  
  • Most of our groups are 6 to 8 participants,
    giving everyone a great opportunity to see
    the birds found on the trip.
  1. Protecting Birds and Wildlife:  Of 365 confirmed
    bird species in this area, several are endemic to
    the region’s white-sand forests, including the
    Rufous Potoo and Fiery Topaz. The Acre
    Antshrike, previously known to inhabit a single
    ridge in Brazil, is only found in the Sierra de Divisor.
    As many as 570 bird species may frequent the
    area.  Sierra del Divisor is also home to 38 medium
    and large mammal species (including 33 primate
    species, Jaguars, Pumas, Giant Armadillos, South
    American Tapirs and  20 threated species), to
    thousands of plant species, to 300 fish species
    (including 14  species new to science or previously
    unrecorded in Peru) and to 109 species of
    amphibians and reptiles.

Status of Project:

The Rainforest Trust has raised the funds for the first
phase of the project .  They are now on the second phase
of the project.

The Partnership for International Birding’s effort along
with the efforts of the Friends of the Partnership for
International Birding have so far (as about the first week
of January) developed support for over 50,000 acres.  
We would like to double this before the project is done,
preserving over 100,000 acres.

The total project will cost about $2.9 million and will turn
5.9 million acres of Peruvian rainforest into a National
Park, protecting birds, wildlife, and the interest of the local
people who live in these areas.  The National Park will
limit logging, oil and gas development and  mining in the
area.  Phase 1 of the three phase project costs $646,000,
protecting nearly 1.3 million acres.

Note:  One acre is about the size of a football playing
field.  5.9 million acres is larger than the the state of  New
Jersey.  We hope Friends of the Partnership for
International Birding can protect land about the size of
Denver county in Colorado (which is where our home
office is located).
