Betty Petersen, director of the Birders’ Exchange, discusses her work and her birding travels on BirdCallsRadio. This episode originally aired on Sept. 9, 2012.
Take a listen to this archive as Betty talks about the Birders’ Exchange, a program of the American Birding Association whereby donated new and used equipment is collected and distributed to ABA colleagues working to conserve birds and their habitats throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. Betty has traveled extensively in the Neotropics to distribute the equipment and has plenty of fascinating stories to tell about the people who receive the materials and the conservation work they do.
Betty also talks about the translation into Spanish in 2006 of “A Neotropical Companion, An Introduction to the Animals, Plants and Ecosystems of the New World Tropics”, by John Kricher (Princeton Press, 1997).
