About This Project

Migratory birds, songbirds in particular, over-winter in the tropics. Much of the land is being deforested to make room for agriculture. I have a unique opportunity to establish a bird sanctuary on at least 300 acres of a large organic cocoa plantation in the Dominican Republic. Funds raised for this project will be used to support a team of ornithologists who will identify the species of songbirds that live on the plantation.
