The Refuge of Angel Paz

A name that is becoming well-known among birders interested in Ecuadorian birds is Angel Paz. Angel has discovered that birders will pay for the opportunity to see some of Ecuador's most hard-to-find birds, and has figured out a way to draw some of those birds into openings in the forest where they can be observed. His discovery has led him to begin re-foresting some of his land, and to protect the birds that he used to hunt for food. Anyone who is concerned about the declining numbers and extinctions of tropical birds has to hope that more farmers like Angel Paz will see the value and importance of protecting some of the native forest of Ecuador and the neighboring countries of South America.
