New Managers

December 20, 2013

We are Ryne, Jenny and Cypress, the new managers of Reserva Las Tangaras. We are excited to spend the next 6 weeks taking care of the lodge and exploring the precious rainforest that surrounds it. We arrived here December 12 when Dusti and her crew of volunteers were here to participate in the Christmas bird count and also to band birds! We shocked everyone by arriving with a baby in the dark, but quickly meshed with this fun and conservation minded group. Well over 300 birds were banded during their stay here. Their research, which they graciously donated their time and money to make happen, will broaden our knowledge of many rare little known species. Many thanks to all!
On December 14th the biggest event of the year in Mindo occurred, the annual ChrIstmas bird count! Out of all the Christmas bird counts in the world, this one routinely has one of the highest counts. Our team (8 volunteers, Dusti and Ryne) alone had 139 species all within a short walking distance of the reserve! Although the numbers are not in yet this count can get around 500 species for one day all within 15 miles of Mindo!
Since their departure we have been graced with the company of several interesting guests which are keeping us busy!

    I’m so happy to hear there is another little one living at the reserve. My son loved our time there. It was an incredible experience for all of us. I look forward to reading more about your family’s time at the reserve!

    How is the furniture holding up? A year after we made it (more or less), we’re wondering if it ever started falling apart 🙂

      some of the joints on the couch are getting a bit weak, but overall, its holding up well. Thanks for your contribution, I’ve really been enjoying the furniture.
