Caribbean birdwatchers urged to submit their sightings

09-01-2007

Past and present visitors to the Caribbean are being asked to dust off their notebooks and dig out their holiday bird sightings in a bid to increase knowledge and understanding of bird distribution and status in the Caribbean.

The Caribbean islands are renowned for their birds – over 560 different species occur there, 148 of which are found nowhere else on Earth – yet good information on abundance and distribution of these birds is still lacking for many of these species.

Conservationists within the BirdLife Caribbean Program are looking to the birdwatching world to help reverse this trend by submitting their sightings on Caribbean Birds, part of a global internet-based recording facility.
