New children’s guide to Haiti‘s birds

16-06-2006

Children in schools across Haiti have the opportunity to learn about their special birds – including 24 found only on the island of Hispaniola – thanks to a new guide, A la découverte des oiseaux d’Haiti (Discover the birds of Haiti), produced by Ms Florence Sergile.

The book has many novel features, including a sparrow character to guide children through simple, fun exercises aimed at increasing their appreciation of Haitian natural heritage that includes todies, tanagers and the unique Palmchat Dulus dominicus.

92 species are covered, with French, Creole and English names all given, and including most common resident and migratory birds.
