WHO WE ARE

 
The Ornithological Group of Estrecho (GOES) is composed of nature lovers in general with particular interest in avifauna,and who unselfishly dedicate part of their time out in the field to enjoy the birds, an activity that can be used , in one way or the other , to help protect and to conserve nature for the present generations and to instill the respect for the environment by future generations.

 

Observando aves

The aims of this association can be summarized in two ways: 1:The conservation of the natural environment and the spreading of our natural values. The main activities concentrate on the study and the protection of wild birds and their habitats, especially of those more vulnerable such as the wetland areas. 2:As the name of the group indicates, birds are the main “instrument” that we use to carry out this work. Within this scope, the scientific ringing of birds has a special relevance to being one of the fundamental tools in the conservation and spreading environmental values.

What we want to say here is that GOES is at the disposal of all members of the public and invites any person interested in birds, the environment and in their conservation, to collaborate with us. Any type of help will be very welcome and we assure you that the experience will be very rewarding.
