During the event (held at Corferias from 6 to 9 June 2012), we managed to establish contacts with various national and international environmental organizations to create potential partnerships work. The ProAves Foundation was also recognized for their hard work over the last 13 years for the conservation of our birds, at the same time noting that Colombia stands first place in the world for its great diversity with 1,889 species of birds.
