Colombia is number one in bird diversity in the world but our birds face many challenges. We started the campaign "ALL FOR THE BIRDS – Aves Colombianas" with the aim of increasing awareness about Colombia's remarkable bird diversity throughout the country.
Our goal is to distribute 11.000 albums + photo-stickers depicting 427 Colombian birds.

Colombia is currently building peace and birds are a part of it. With the recent signing of the peace deal, Colombia is preparing to open its doors to thousands of visitors from all over the world hoping to enjoy its exceptional bird diversity. In the world of birds there are many opportunities for young people who live in biodiversity hotspots to get involved. With this album we want to help them discover the opportunities that birding tourism brings. The youngsters won’t carry guns, but photo cameras, binoculars and the dream of a better country.
The birds are important for peace in Colombia!
Bird Culture = Culture of peace
Birds and cultural identity
For two years we have been implementing in Colombia our program Bird culture, culture of peace, through which strengthens learning processes in young people interested in birds by bringing them books and equipment, and by providing workshops with birding tourism experts aimed at creating the next generation of birdwatching guides. The collection is the focal point of this capacity building program, and also a tool to sensitize the Colombian population about this natural treasure and encourage the birders from all the world to visit our country. The resources obtained from the other half of the print run in Colombia, and bird-related events in Europe and the United States, will be donated to 25 organizations that promote education, conservation, and the development of birding tourism in different parts of the country.
In 2015, we invited professionals and amateur photographers from all over the country to share their bird photographs to create a photographic collection that could serve to highlight this natural wealth of our country and generate resources to support conservation processes, environmental education And development of Aviturismo. There were 85 photographers who attended our call, we received two thousand photographs and selected 475 for the first edition of the collection. Today we are ready to print the first print run of the collection (11,000 albums + 5,000,000 stickers). It is a collaborative social – environmental project to help the conservation of birds. The following are companies and organizations that have supported us in the development of this project.
