Jacamar Club start on 2004 by Richard Amable. Initial activities with a group of friends included bird watching, exploring areas where birds congregate in numbers to do bird observation, bird monitoring, local education and habitat conservation involving local students. Today we have moved forward to tour guiding and leading birding tours in to the neo-tropical rainforest among Madre de Dios region of Perú and to the Highlands of Cusco. Our team continues to monitor birding habitats. We keep running birding activities with the locals, and working with local organizations to conserve biodiversity in Perú. This is our history and involve great people and skills.

2004

In Puerto Maldonado, Richard Amable together with Carlos Huamani and Miguel Rios start a birding group and the first steps of Birding in Action Programs. In the same year we met birder Daniel L. Lebbin from Cornell University. Dr. Lebbin encouraged Richard’s team to form an organization to teach birding and conservation ideas to the community. Richard began teaching birding and using educational activities with students from around Puerto Maldonado where an appreciation for birding did not exist and habitat conservation was not thorough enough to protect biodiversity.
We partner with Vortex Optics, The team has grown and the force become stronger. The Birding in Action and the events for birding class gets more effective.
Richard gains strength and appreciation by teaching more birding walks, talks, and classes involving students from SENATI Institute and UNAMAD University.
