During those two months Teresa was a committed student, a resilient human being to the adversities that living and working near the jungle represents. As a San Pancho Bird Observatory we recognize her commitment, dedication, passion and dedication to perform all the activities that, as part of the study, were required.
In total, Teresa and the OASP team managed to collect information from 72 counting points in 11 transects, having a list of 89 bird species and 1,270 registered individuals, of which 15 are endemic, 9 are protected by NOM-059- SEMARNAT-2010 and 4 are under the Red List of IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature). In addition, with the threat analysis, data matrix of the environmental problems facing the area was established, as well as of the possible actions to reduce its effects.
We are infinitely grateful to the “The Sea Turtle Exhange International Sea Turtle Intership” program and its General Director, Katherine de los Santos, for entrusting us with the formation of one of her students during the summer. For our part, we continue to maintain our commitment to the training of young students interested in the conservation of birds and their habitats.
We will be sharing Teresa´s ´project results to the community in an event coming soon!
