Birds of Paradise Project

Author: Guest Writer/Wednesday, November 28, 2012/Categories: Uncategorized

Cornell’s Laboratory of Ornithology and the National Geographic Society are bringing the Birds-of-Paradise Project to the public.

The birds, native only to the deep, mountain rainforests of New Guinea, The Bird of Paradise Project will include an exhibit at the National Geographic Museum in Washington; a documentary on NatGeoTV; articles in the Lab’s Living Bird Magazine and National Geographic Magazine; and live lectures around the USA. The project aims to educate people who may have never heard of or witnessed these remarkable birds and their diverse courtship strategies. Relatives of the common pigeon, these symbols of bird biodiversity and behavior will also assist in the conservation of their forest habitats from the threats of tropical deforestation. Birds of Paradise represents one of evolution’s true wonders.

Try catching one of the Cornell or National Geographic events if they come to your city or you are in Washington. Be amazed by these beautiful, rare birds.
