Over 3,500 miles in three months. San Diego, CA to Anchorage, AK. Stops in dozens of towns, cities, public lands and other wildlife hot spots. This road trip is going to be EPIC!
2016 marks the Centennial of the first Migratory Bird Treaty, the cornerstone of international efforts to conserve birds that know no borders. Millions of birds migrate across the United States and neighboring countries. This is thanks, in part, to a total of four Migratory Bird Treaties that have collectively facilitated a long, successful history of conserving, protecting and managing migratory bird populations and their habitats in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Japan and Russia.
This spring, the incredible story of migrating birds and the communities with which they intersect will be told through the eyes of two young bird novices, Jean and Christian; a.k.a. BirdTrippers. Their one-of-a-kind amazing adventure will follow the Pacific Flyway from southern California to Alaska. Their inspiration will be the landscapes and people of National Wildlife Refuges, National Parks, Urban Bird Treaty Cities and other communities.
Thanks for visiting BirdTrippers.com, where you are invited to follow along with theis journey and enjoy all of the sights, sounds, and stories of the Flyway.
