Join Rob and Tara Cahill from Community Cloud Forest Conservation as they share their treasure trove of experiences from ten years in Guatemala's central highlands. Take a journey deep into the cloud forest and learn about the elusive Resplendent Quetzal and its natural history. On the way, we'll learn about many other species of birds endemic to the highlands of northern mesoamerica. We'll explore the ecology of the cloud forest and discover why cloud forest conservation is a huge challenge as well as a high priority—and why a community-based approach to such conservation is necessary.
