Paraguay 2017

 

Travel with Atlanta Audubon to Paraguay

August 5-18, 2017

 

Despite being frequently passed over by travelers in favor of its larger neighbors, Paraguay is an amazing place full of unique wildlife and locations. With an avian species list just above 700, more and more people are becoming aware of the birding opportunities that Paraguay provides. Though home to only a single endemic species, the Chaco Nothura, many regionally difficult birds can be spotted such as the endangered White-winged Nightjar, Bare-throated Bellbird (National bird), Black-bodied Woodpecker, and Quebracho-crested Tinamou, to name just a few.

 

Join conservation director Adam Betuel as he co-leads a 14-day adventure to this under-visited

nation. Adam will be hosting the trip with Paul Smith, an authority on Paraguayan birds who is

active in scientific research, conservation, and tour leading (Fauna Paraguay.)

 

Participants can expect to see more than 300 species of birds and, potentially, more than 20 species of mammals. Multiple habitats will be visited, including the wet and dry Chaco, Cerrado, and Atlantic Forest as well as a trip to the famous Iguazu Falls in Argentina. This tour is capped at 10 participants, so don’t delay. The price will be $4,295 for Atlanta Audubon members and members of other regional Audubon chapters and $4,495 for non-members. The cost of the trip includes all lodging, all transportation, all meals, entrance fees to parks, and some but not all snacks, alcoholic beverages, and tips (excluding divers and guide.) The cost does NOT include flight, passport and visa costs, souvenirs, or any costs accrued before or after the trip, including but not limited to travel insurance, personal items, medicine, etc.
