Wow, it’s already spring! Birds are on their way north and should be back on their breeding grounds soon. Spring Migration is the absolute best time of the year to get out and bird. We invite you to get out this spring and bird, and also do so with a purpose. Rainforest Biodiversity Group invites you to participate in our annual BIRD-A-THON; either as a birder yourself, or as a donor.
RBG’s annual BIRD-A-THON is our main fundraising event for our Small Grant Program. Each year the money we raise during our BIRD-A-THON goes to a great project that is helping to conserve rainforest habitat throughout the Americas. Visit our Crowdrise Site to Donate: www.crowdrise.com/11th-annual-bird-a-thon
This year will be our 11th BIRD-A-THON!!! It will take place on May 13th, 2017. We are seeking donations to support our Team of Birders who will go out and spend the day birding. Will you make a donation to support our birders? You can pledge an amount per bird species, say $1 per species or even 50 cents a species. It all helps. You can also make a lump sum donation as well.
Note all donors of $50 or more will receive our annual BIRD-A-THON T-shirt.
You can also Join our Team, and help us raise funds by joining as a birder! You can join our team here on Crowdrise and increase your impact by getting others to support Rainforest Biodiversity Group and our BIRD-A-THON.
All levels of support are welcome. All donations are of course fully tax deductible, and you will recieve a receipt from us for your tax purposes. Last year the winner of our Small Grant was Albergue el Socorro; a family run private reserve. Our funds will help them improve and expand their cabins as to help them be economically sustainable as to maintain protection of their forest habitat that form part of the San Juan – La Selva Biological Corridor in Northern Costa Rica.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions about donating or joining our fundraiser as a birder.
Note: Once again we are hosting our Bird-a-thon on the same day as Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s Global Big Day. We encourage all birders of the Bird-a-thon to enter their data into eBird! Also Be sure to provide your t-shirt size and shipping address in the “Comment, In Memory, Tribute (Optional): ” Box on the Donation Page!
We thank you for your generous support of our effort to protect the rainforests of the Americas.
