The Panama Audubon Society has been promoting birds in Panama for over 35 years. During the last ten years we have worked more directly on conservation and education about birds and their habitats, using the Important Bird Area program as an umbrella. Our major areas of interest are the wetlands of the Upper Bay of Panama and the primary forests of El Chorogo, Chiriqui.
Audubon Panama works locally with public schools, and rural communities and have a seat on the Patronato of the Metropolitan Nature Park and Amigos del Águila Harpía. We also work internationally; PAS is the Panama Partner of BirdLife International and Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN). In addition we are members of IUCN and the Waterbird Conservation Council.
During the year we conduct more than 20 birding fieldtrips and we have monthly meetings on the second Thursday of each month. Other activities include four Christmas Bird Counts, Raptors Counts and World Bird Festival.
