BIRDING COSTA RICA

The SMBC Congress is held every year. In 2002, we celebrated the VI Congress of the SMBC in Costa Rica, then we returned in 2010 for the XIV Congress with the successful participation of hundreds of students and professionals. After seven years, we return to Costa Rica, hoping to once again contribute to the professional and technical development of our membership by celebrating the 21st Congress in the city of San José, Costa Rica. We wanted to expand our efforts and knowledge-sharing by combining with the Partners in Flight (PIF) international conference. PIF has been a partner of SMBC since 2008; it includes more than 150 partner organizations throughout the Western Hemisphere. They are committed to all aspects of terrestrial bird conservation from science, research, planning, and policy development to land management, monitoring, education, and outreach. Partners in Flight will meet in Costa Rica to promote interest in understanding and preserving birds throughout their annual cycle. PIF hopes to meet in Mesoamerica to increase partnerships with students and professionals across the region. In addition, they are interested in examining the relevance of science and bird conservation and biodiversity in the broader fields of sustainable development and human well-being.
