International Capacity Building

KBO’s International Capacity Building fosters training and information exchange throughout the Americas. Our international programming includes recruiting student volunteer interns from outside the US for our banding training program, participation in international banding training projects, and research collaborations and technical support partnerships with bird observatories in Latin America and the Caribbean. Long-running partnerships with US Forest Service International Programs and Oregon State University make this work possible.

Our International Bird Observatory Partners

Observatorios de Aves de Costa Rica (CRBO—Costa Rica Bird Observatories) is a nationwide partnership that promotes bird conservation and education in Costa Rica. CRBO works in collaboration with the National Institute of Biodiversity, US Forest Service International Programs, Humboldt Bay Bird Observatory, and KBO.
Through these and a variety of partnerships across the country, CRBO gathers, preserves, and analyzes bird monitoring data and generates tools that enhance and promote bird conservation, serving as a model to be implemented across the Americas. Local efforts are fully integrated with local scientists, NGO’s, decision makers, and schools. CRBO’s operations are some of the longest running in Latin America.
CRBO’s mission is to provide leadership for bird conservation in Costa Rica, through the establishment of successful field efforts that lead to strategic decisions for bird conservation at a regional scale.
