    A talk between the Biodiversa Colombia Foundation (FBC) and the Antioquia Ornithological Society (SAO) in the roundtable discussion "The story with the birds."

    The last Medellin Birds Festival of 2015 offered a space where researchers of FBC and SAO shared their experiences and work towards preserving the Blue-billed Curassow (Crax alberti). This constitutes actions that are part of the Vida Silvestre Project (PVS) in the Middle Magdalena.

    This was an excellent opportunity to discuss the strategy of the Biodiversa Colombia Foundation, together with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), advancing in the forest swamps of Barbacoas, (Antioquia). There, deforestation and forest fragmentation, among other reasons, have affected this bird to such an extent that she is now in a critical state of threat.
