¿Why Birding With Us?

Birding in Colombia

Hi, we are Niky Carrera Levy and Mauricio Ossa(Niky & Mauro) creators of «Birds Colombia«. We would like to tell you our story . We are both Advertising professionals and photographers. Our love of birds brought us together as a couple.

Since 2015 we have been developing Communication Strategies to raise awareness about the importance of birds and their habitat in Colombia. In 2021 we traveled 365 days through the 32 departments, the first Big Year in Colombia, we reached every corner of the country, we visited the most biodiverse places in Colombia to observe and photograph birds. This trip allowed us to reach remote communities to talk to them about conservation and the importance of ecotourism. «We are looking for children to become «Birds Guardian«, a project that connects children with conservation through birds. Nearly 1,000 children have participated and we have delivered 40 birding kits (binoculars, bird guide book, backpack, vest, cap, T-shirt).
