Amazonia is probably one of the best region in the world for bird watching. From the 19th until the 24th of July, the Brazilian ornithological congress (X Neotropical Ornithological Congress & XXII Congresso Brasileiro de Ornitologia) takes place in Manaus. The theme of the congress is Ornithology and Society. It was chosen “to encourage and strengthen the bonds between the science of ornithology and the whole of society”. Scientists would like to raise population awareness on bird conservation. During these days activities will be organized such as round-tables and keynote speakers, as well as cultural events.
The Congress is in collaboration with notably the National Research Institute of the Amazon (INPA), association with which Heliconia Amazonia Turismo has been working with.
Heliconia Amazonia Turismo organized the tourist activities (focused on ornithological tourism in Amazonia) and trips for the congress’ participants. So they will be able to discover the beauties of the Amazon rainforest and to do some bird watching with experimented guides. We will offer you many one day trips to see some very rare birds like the Guianan Cock-of-the-rock (Rupicola rupicola) and many others. We also organize very authentic cruise to discover the wild Amazon region.
