A note of thanks from Guyana

Dear Birders’ Exchange,

Hope all is well.  We are attaching a few pictures with a couple of our Members from the GUYANA AMAZON TROPICAL BIRDS SOCIETY (GATBS) . As you can see this equipment is used for field trips, assessments, and researchers of the society

Our partner the Guyana Amazon Tropical Birds Society goes from strength to strength.  One of the goals of the GATBS is to educate the public about birds and bird conservation.  The Society has been  particularly successful in reaching at-risk youth.  Since its official registration in May 2005, the Society has inspired over 80 youths to join as members and devote their time and energy to conservation.

The GATBS plays a very important role in collecting base line data, monitoring bird populations and protecting bird habitats.  All of this information has been shared with the tourism sector to enable tourism businesses to function more responsibly. etc… they are very useful to the society.

There are some updates about the society and birding in general in Guyana at www.guyanabirding.com

Thank You so much for your kind donations to the Society.

All our very best.

Andy and members of the society
