Paper: Economic and Conservation Potential of Bird-Watching Tourism in Postconflict Colombia
As Colombia brings a 50-year war to a close, its immense biodiversity will be available to all, including avid birdwatchers from all corners of the World. In this paper, we show the economic and conservation potential for birdwatching tourism for rural communities and remnant forests. With a clever use of eBird, we identify birding localities that recently became available as conflict ceased, and map thos with the highest potential for future development. Read the paper here!
