PRINCETON — Travel around the world learning about birds and other amazing animals from the comfort of your home with Mass Audubon’s Birdwatching Around the World series.
Over five weeks, Mass Audubon will take you on a virtual tour of these iconic destinations and the fascinating birdlife found there.
“Immerse yourself in the incredible and diverse bird life found in Africa, Central Asia, Central America, and South America,” said Scott Santino, Education Manager at Mass Audubon. “Each of these areas being presented are rich in avian biodiversity, supporting many species that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. These online programs provide an opportunity for adults to learn about amazing places to see birds from the comfort of their home.”
