 A new website www.faunadarien.co was launched by SELVA in November 2014 that promotes wildlife watching sites in the Darién and Urabá regions in north-west Colombia. The site is one of the products from the project “Crossing the Caribbean – Conserving the Darién migratory bird hotspot by building capacity for ecotourism” funded by the Rufford Small Grants Fund. Alongside a photographic guide to the region’s wildlife, a guide for birdwatchers and a series of capacity building activities for local guides, this suite of products is expected to help position wildlife watching as a central theme in the local tourism market.
