Cuba with Audubon Nature Odysseys
March 27, 2012 - April 08, 2012
Join Audubon leader John Hannan for a unique opportunity to interact with Cuban naturalists as you study the birds of Cuba. This 13-day excursion is made possible by the National Audubon Society’s one-year license for travel to Cuba, focusing on the unique avifauna of the island and creating people-to-people connections with Cuban conservationists and environmental communities. The program provides the chance to observe a wide variety of Cuba’s reported 370 species of birds, including highlights such as the Bee Hummingbird and the Zapata Wren.
