Wake Audubon has partnered with one of our sponsor’s, EcoQuest Travel, to offer a 12-day birding/natural history excursion to the Dominican Republic. The dates for the trip are: January 14-25, 2011. The cost of the trip is ~$3,700, which includes airfare and all other major expenses (e.g. food and lodging, but not alcohol). The trip is designed to see 31 of the 32 bird species endemic to the island of Hispaniola (we won’t be able to get the one in Haiti). Also included is some boat time in lovely Caribbean waters to observe Humpback whales, which breed in the area. We are currently accepting registrations and deposits.
