My fieldwork in Peru depends on rich partnerships with the rural communities where we work. We try to give back in any way possible, but we find the most rewarding and effective approach is through education programs that communicate our science. We developed a series of workshops in avian ecology and conservation biology what we share with schools and community organizations in our study region of Amazonas, Peru. This, combined with visual tools tools such as posters and visits to our banding stations, will hopefully instill a deeper awareness and appreciation for each community’s local avifauna and forested ecosystems. This work is done in collaboration with the Amazonas Network of Private Conservation Areas in Peru as part of the project Aves de Los Bosques Montanos Peruanos.
