On May 13, 2017, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s birding Dream Team, the Sapsuckers, will reach for an audacious goal: finding 300 bird species in just 24 hours – and raising $475,000. Can they do it?!
This year, for Big Day, they will be heading to the Yucatán Peninsula, one of the world’s most stunning and important areas for birds.
In order to cover the phenomenal bird diversity there, they will be dividing into three teams for the first time ever: Team Belize, Team Guatemala, and Team Mexico. All three teams will be joining forces in a quest to find the most bird species and raise $475,000 for conservation.
Will you help Team Belize, Team Guatemala, and Team Mexico by pledging for every bird species they find?
After Big Day, we’ll share with you the results of Team Sapsucker’s efforts and ask you to fulfill your pledged gift. For example, if you pledge $0.25 today and Team Sapsucker meets their goal of finding 300 bird species, you will receive an email to fulfill your pledge of $75.
Our thanks for your support:
- For gifts and pledges over $100 you’ll receive a coffee mug featuring the Cedar Waxwing by Ann-Kathrin Wirth, a Bartels Science Illustration Intern.
