Preview the Virtual Birding Fundraiser here:
Each winter, the Tropical Wings Board of Directors and Tropical Wings Members travel to Costa Rica to participate in a fundraising bird-a-thon. Participants seek donations in a similar fashion to marathon fundraising (donations are sometimes made in a lump-sum or funds are donated on a per bird basis), and when participants arrive in Costa Rica, they try to spot as many bird species as possible! The money raised during the bird-a-thon is then granted to organizations that are dedicated to conserving migratory birds in the St. Croix Watershed and Costa Rica.
Due to safety concerns and travel restrictions related to COVID-19, the Costa Rica Bird-a-thon did not take place in 2021. However, the Tropical Wings team has continued to worked closely with Surcos Tours, and we collaborated to create a virtual birding experience we are calling Aves Increibles: The Incredible Birds of Costa Rica. This film features photos and videos of beautiful birds and narration describing the variety of unique bird families that call Costa Rica home.
