Flying home

Migratory birds have no borders

Baja California is essential for the survival of thousands of birds, it’s a resting and nesting site for many species, as it is part of the Pacific Flyway, a route along the Pacific coast used by migratory birds that travel each fall to the San Quintin Bay.

You can help them get home!

  • The black brants fly 2,800 miles nonstop each fall from Alaska to San Quintin Bay. Did you know that migratory birds can fly at a speed of 240 kilometers per hour?
  • Since 2015 we have celebrated the San Quintin Bird Festival to strengthen the connection between the  local communities with the natural space they share with the migratory birds.
  • Every winter 27% of the world population of snowy plover inhabits the bay. This bird species nests between April and August on the sandy beaches of the Punta Mazo Nature Reserve.
  • In 2021 we signed an agreement with a touristic company to preserve the habitat of birds that live and migrate to the bay.
  • Birds have a safe place to rest, feed and nest in the certified nature reserves in San Quintin.


We received the Group Stewardship Award, which honors an individual or group that contributes significantly to the management, conservation, or restoration of landbird habitat or species, as well as our community engagement approach and the design of the San Quintín Bay Bird Festival.
