In 2010, Omar Diaz Villalobos. founded PERU BIRDING TOURS EIRL with nothing more than one inspiration and a burning desire to create an authentic, sustainable travel experience by offering birding, photografhy and nature tours in Peru. After some years the only thing that hasn’t changed is his passion for birding, photografhy and nature which inspire him to keep organizing tours with some time for teaching about neotropical birds and conservation along his birding way.
Peru Birding Tours headquearter is located in Puerto Maldonado. But we have oficce partners in Lima, Cusco, Tarapoto and Chiclayo. We offer custom and fixed-dates tours and we promote conservation, environmental education with responsible ecotourism in benefit of the areas we run our tours. We designed our tours choosing the best birding areas, lodges with nice accomodations providing private transportation according the group size.
PBT is spreading in the last years offering at other locations: Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Panama, Costa Rica.
PROYECT AND CONSERVATION
We promote conservation through lessons about birdwatching and tourism in general 2 times a year according our disponability. We usually organize for students from high school and universities along several locations in Peru. Thanks to our birding lessons we have some on our guides team.
We designed some small bird plates for Tambopata and we hope to make a complete Birds of Tambopata field guide very soon.
But also we promote conservation using local restaurants, hotels, lodges, guides according the birding area on our way runing the tours and we can assure they provide great service in general.
This a new proyect for our home town, we are helping a remote elementary school with some donation of notebooks, books, pencils and other things that they will need for the school season. In some ocations if we have some extra profits we donate cloth also. And in the last year we started organizing a lunch meeting for a local senior center for christmas time and we hope to keep doing for many years.
We all do with some of the profits that we get from our tours and we do it with a good felling because we like to help also those who need and not only for bussines.
NOTE: if you want to help with some donation or any recommendation, your are more than welcome.
