¿Why Birding With Us?
Hi, we are Niky Carrera Levy and Mauricio Ossa, directors of Birds Colombia. We would like to tell you our story and to share the services we provide through Birds Colombia. We are both Advertising professionals and photographers. Our mutual love of birds brought us together as a couple. Since 2015 we have been developing Communications Strategies to raise awareness of the importance of birds and their habitat in the development of a «green based» economy for Colombia.
In 2021 we traveled throughout Colombia’s 32 departments (states) to complete the «American Birding Association Big Year». A Big Year is a personal challenge among birders who attempt to identify as many species of birds as possible in a period of one year. The Big Year challenge allowed us to reach all corners of the country, learn about the most bio diverse places in Colombia and to observe and photograph birds. We were the first bird watchers to take the Big Year challenge in Colombia. This journey also allowed us to reach remote communities and gave us the opportunity to talk to them about conservation and the importance of ecological tourism. » we look for children to become leaders «Birds Guardian«, a project that connects children to conservation through birds, nearly 1,000 children have participated and we have delivered 30 birding kits (binoculars, bird guide book, backpack, vest, cap, T-shirt).
