Puerto Rico

In collaboration with

eBird is an online program launched in 2002 by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society of the United States. The Puerto Rico Chapter is managed by Para La Naturaleza in collaboration with SOPI. The purpose of the program is to store lists of bird observations in real time, where you can also report and access information about birds sighted in your area.
