ABOUT BIRD BANDING
Bird banding is a marking technique for the study of wild birds, which consists of placing a coded ring, usually aluminum, on the leg of a living bird. Bird banding data are useful in both research and management projects. The individual identification of birds makes it possible to study dispersion, migration, behavior, social structure, life span, survival rate, reproductive success and population growth, among others.
The Tambopata Center for Education, Science and Conservation (CECCOT acronym in Spanish) is a non-profit non-governmental organization established in Madre de Dios, Peru. CECCOT’s mission is to promote Amazonian biodiversity conservation and research, and to offer training opportunities for ecological research and sustainable livelihoods in the Peruvian Amazonia, in particular in the Madre de Dios region.
The vision of Hacienda Herrera is to become a center for amazonian Conservation and investigation. In this view we are working to become an active Bird banding station, and have a monthly registry of bird species, so being able to monitor their well-being and the quality of our environment over time.
