Pacific Biodiversity Institute invites avid birders to join a research
expedition December 2 - 14, 2014, in the provinces of Salta and Jujuy in
northwestern Argentina. These provinces are renowned for their rich
biodiversity and beautiful landscapes. They are ecologically diverse, with
imposing mountains, extensive sub-tropical and tropical forests, rivers,
canyons, deserts, salt flats and high lakes. The area is extremely rich in
bird life, and other wild fauna and flora. Salta and Jujuy also contain some
of the most colorful and vibrant culture in Argentina. Evidence of Inca and
pre-Inca civilizations are found throughout the landscape. These provinces
contain some of the most important unprotected wildlands in Argentina.

The purpose of the expedition is twofold: 1) to gather more information
about this region to aid in its further protection, 2) to introduce new
people to this area of incredible contrasts, immense biodiversity,
spectacular beauty and great conservation opportunity. Those interested in
joining this trip may contact PBI at expeditions at pacificbio.org. Further
