A New Approach to Protecting a Rare Songbird (10/22/2012)
IBTCG Progress Report Jan-Jun 2012 (6/28/2012)
Summary: During these six months I have concentrated my efforts in building capacity of our partner NGOs, understanding the needs and perceptions of local ornithologists in the DR towards our conservation plans, writing proposals, and language training. I have spent a considerable amount of time travelling and especially solving logistic and bureaucratic issues. For the rest of the year I plan to complete these tasks, expand our activities to Sierra de Bahoruco in the DR, and visit new areas of importance for BITH conservation. Finally, I present an analysis of our current efforts and make recommendations to adjust our current plans to a strategy that seeks to guarantee the long-term success and sustainability of our mission.
