Celebrate the Year of the Bird with National Geographic

National Geographic has joined forces with the National Audubon Society, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and Bird Life International to designate 2018 as the Year of the Bird, bringing attention to the threats birds face and reigniting conservation efforts. To celebrate the Year of the Bird, we’ve designed three new trips to some of the world’s top birding hotspots. Watch for macaws and trogons with a National Geographic birding expert on trips to Costa Rica and Peru. Set out into the forests of Ecuador with a local birding guide on a private expedition for just you and the travel companions you choose. Join Year of the Bird Ambassadors on select voyages aboard the National Geographic-Lindblad fleet. Or settle into a National Geographic Unique Lodge—more than 30 of our member offer guided birding excursions.
