The Magic of Central America: Costa Rica’s Birds and Ecology

November 15, 2023 @ 8:08 pm PST


The Santa Barbara Audubon Society invites the public to a program on Costa Rica’s exceptional bird world on Wednesday, November 15 at Farrand Hall, Museum of Natural History. Time is 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.

Costa Rica has long been regarded as one of the top tropical birding destinations in the world. Roughly the size of West Virginia, it is home to approximately 5% of the world’s biodiversity. More than 900 species of birds with many regional endemics are found only in Costa Rica and Western Panama.

This illustrated presentation will visit a variety of ecosystems including the cloud forest, the Caribbean lowlands, and the Pacific tropical dry forest, illustrating the ecological factors that have made Costa Rica an international birding mecca.

Presenter Benny Isaac Jacobs-Schwartz owns and operates a bird-guiding business and lifestyle brand called BIRDS by BIJS (pronounced Bee-jus). Working professionally for more than 10 years as a naturalist guide, expedition trip leader, and international bird guide, Jacob-Schwartz is a passionate educator and bird photographer.

The program is free to the public. More information can be found at https://santabarbaraaudubon.org/programs/.
