Partners in Flight Awards recognize individuals or groups that contribute significantly to the conservation of migratory and resident birds, as well as the restoration of endangered habitats in the American continent.
This year we received the Group Partners in Flight Stewardship award in recognition of the management, conservation and restoration of land bird habitats, as well as our community engagement approach and the design of the San Quintin Bay Bird Festival. It’s worth mentioning that we were nominated by Jennie Duberstein from Sonoran Joint Venture.
The awards took place online during the North American Ornithology Congress on August 14, 2020, and also received recognitions: Sarahy Contreras (Mexico), Andrew Couturier (Canada), Marvin Torres Gutiérrez (Nicaragua), Yolanda León (Dominican Republic), David Mehlman (USA) and Set Net Communications (Nicaragua).
