Crested Quail Dove in Jamaica

CARIBBEAN ENDEMICS OF JAMAICA BIRDING TOUR

February 8-15, 2016 Tour Fee: $4,915 single/$4,460 double


jamaican tody We dove head-first into the Caribbean in November 2014,with a whirlwind 5-island scouting trip to Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Martinique, and Guadeloupe. As part of our strong commitment to bird conservation, we immediately began building a relationship with BirdsCaribbean, the leading conservation group in the region.

I was then invited to Jamaica in July 2015 as one of the keynote speakers for BirdsCaribbean’s 20th International Meeting. At the meeting, I shared ideas for developing nature- and conservation-based tourism in the region, and representatives from more than 30 different islands responded with enthusiasm.

It’s now time to walk our talk, with a 2016 tour to Jamaica! We are excited to continue our partnership with BirdsCaribbean, and a portion of the proceeds from this tour will support their much-needed conservation efforts in Jamaica. We want to show Jamaicans that healthy bird habitats bring birders to their island, and we are proud to contribute to these efforts. Join us in Jamaica—for the unique tropical nature experience and the genuine island hospitality—and you too will be proud to have gone beyond the birding.

-Your host and lead guide, Steve Shunk
