Brazil, Pantanal Safari: Birds and Jaguars
August 27 through September 9, 2015
South America’s Pantanal region is the world’s largest tropical wetland, the result of several rivers draining seasonally into an ancient inland basin. The rivers bring nutrient-rich sediments that fuel an explosive flush of life unparalleled in the Americas. Houston Audubon and Victor Emanuel Nature Tours are offering a special departure this summer to visit the spectacular Pantanal and the adjacent Cerrado savannas in the heart of southern Brazil. This is the best place on the planet to see jaguar. More than 300 bird species are likely and many South American endemic mammals and reptiles as well.

Leading this trip are VENT leader David Ascanio, an expert on South American birds; Richard Gibbons, Houston Audubon's Conservation Director; and a local guide.

North Jetty is Looking Good!
by Stennie Meadours, former Houston Audubon President

Kudos to Houston Audubon staff and volunteers, Bolivar Peninsula residents, the Sierra Club and Galveston County for the cleanup and placement of educational signs and trash cans at the base of the North Jetty! I truly did not recognize the view which now has appropriate signage and no litter! With continued education, community concern and attention, the North Jetty will look this good or better during spring migration.

Miracles can happen when groups and site managers work together to find solutions. Litter surveys show that people are less likely to litter when there is no litter! To this end, Houston Audubon (HA) has embarked on an initiative to collaborate with Galveston County site managers and stakeholders to reduce plastic waste non-point source pollution along Galveston County shorelines where there is high human recreational litter and nesting/roosting bird habitat.
