American Birding Podcast #1: Laura Kammermeier on Birding Travel

That’s right! We have a podcast. The ABA is jumping into the podcast pond with our first episode of the American Birding Podcast, hosted by yours truly but featuring a number of ABA staff and friends. We hope you will join us as we try out this new venture, and be sure to let us know what you might want to hear on a podcast about birding by the ABA.

Our first guest is Laura Kammermeier of Nature Travel Network. We talk about birding travel, what birders want when they head abroad, and how traveling for birds helps establish ecotourism and conservation initiatives around the world.

I also offer a commentary on a cool birding tourism initiative in Colombia that I had the pleasure of taking part in. You can find more information about that here.

And here’s the post about Hawaii that I mention in the podcast.

There’s more to come! Please let us know what you think on Facebook or Twitter, or right here in the comments.
