Bird Life in Brazil
Presenter: Paulo Boute
Location: Prospect Park Audubon Center at the Boathouse
Parking is available at the new Breeze Hill lot, enter at Lincoln Rd and Ocean Ave.
Come take a virtural tour of the Pantanal and Brazilian birds at this presentation with Brazilian guide Paulo Boute. Paulo is one of the pioneering birders and ornithologists in Brazil, with almost 30 years of experience guiding birders and photographers.
Paulo was born on a ranch near Iguassu Falls and from a very early age he has literally been in touch with Brazilian birds: his older brother collected birds and very often he had the chance of holding them in his own hands! At the age of 17 Paulo moved to the state of Mato Grosso, where he started working as a tour guide in the Pantanal. He was one of the first and now is the most experienced guide working in this unique habitat, with more than a thousand trips to the Pantanal. His Brazilian life list is 1260 birds.
Paulo has inspired others to follow in his tracks and is very proud in having dedicated his life to preserving the birds in Brazil and educating others on their beauty. When he is not guiding--either in the Pantanal, Amazon/Atlantic Forest or in the Brazilian Northeast--he is teaching birdwatching and presenting lectures both abroad and in-country.
