We have specialists for ORCHID observing and determination, Herps and Insect- and Aquarium fish surveys, but are not enough experienced in BIRDS. There is a new Toucan (green Arassari) in our Cordillera Oriental summit forest which does not show up in any of the field guide books from Peru, Ecuador and Columbia. We need Birdwatcher help in this case. The giant cave system of the Cordillera del Condor in Jurassic Karst rocks needs professional exploration- please contact us for details.
