Abstract

This project looked to benefit and increase ecotourism, specifically bird-watching, in Benjamín Aceval. Research and collaboration with the Municipality of Benjamín Aceval and an independent conservation group, Karugua ha’e Tekove contributed to this goal. The team created schematics for an elevated bird observatory and made improvements to the existing mobile application that profiles birds frequently found in Benjamín Aceval. Recommendations include: Install the observatory, other access structures, and promotional road signs, and add the refuge to a “must see” list of international birding tours.
