Maira, Jeffrey and Benjamin! We are a trio with a passion for nature in all its beauty, but we are especially crazy about birds! Born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Maira studied biology and has since become an expert photographer. After graduating with honors and acquiring experience doing research on South America's largest monkey, the endangered Muruqui monkey, Maira moved to Denver, Colorado. Jeffrey is from Cleveland, Ohio but has lived all over the world. His photography skills led him to Brazil where he won several exhibits and awards doing documentary photography. Along the way, a third lover of nature appeared! Like mom and dad, like son....Benji loves to observe birds and when one comes along, he always asks for his "onoculars".
Birding Is The World is a new organization that explores the world of birding, with an emphasis on Brazil. Why are we interested in birds? Because they're amazing creatures and because it's important to save them for future generations.Why are we interested in Brazil? Because it's one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, home to over 1/3 of all bird species.
These environments are in danger of non-existence.
What can we do about this problem? There are lots of things that people can do but Birding Is The World believes that the best way to help is by getting out there and observing what’s happening with your own eyes so you have some idea of what needs more attention.
This philosophy leads us towards being a global conservation project with birding and local culture cultivation at its infrastructure.
