Hello and Happy 2016! This year is a special year for Rainforest Biodiversity Group (formerly Friends of the Great Green Macaw)....It is our 10 year Anniversary Bird-a-thon Fundraiser!
This year's "Big Day" of birding will occur on May 14th, 2016. This day will mark the day we get out and go birding and raise funds to support Rainforest Biodiveristy Group's Small Grant Program.
To remind our regular supporters , and to inform new potential donors, how the Bird-a-thon works; it's quiet simple. We go out and seek as many bird species as we can find in one day. We get sponsors to support us by contributing a per-species donation; or a lump sum donation. For instance if you sponsored $1 a bird and the birder you sponsored sees 100 birds your donation would be $100. Again as a sponsor you are welcome to donate any amount you wish, and it doesnt have to be per-species.
If you are intersted in joining our team and birding, you can let us know and simply join the fundraiser here on CrowdRise. You will appear with the other birders below. For those of you sponsoring a birder, click on your team member below and click the donate button!
This year our goal is $3000, but we are hoping to exceed that! We will turn around and use funds raised to support a great conservation project. The funds raised in 2015 have been awarded to a project working on the conservation of the Harpy Eagle in Brazil. As such our T-shirt this year will feature the Harpy Eagle!! All donors of $50 or more qualify to receive a 10th Anniversary RBG Bird-a-thon T-shirt. Please note your size in the donation notes section!
All donations are of course fully tax deductible, and you will recieve a receipt from us for your tax purposes. If you prefer a check please send the check to your birder to get to RBG or to RBG directly:
