REGUA was present at the 7th annual Brazilian Birdfair, the Avistar in São Paulo between the 18th and 20th May. The stand was generously funded by the Cachoeiras de Macacu County Council and REGUA shared the space with Serra dos Tucanos lodge and Vale das Taquaras lodge, both close to REGUA. The well attended bird fair represents the most important event for birdwatchers in the country and there were ample opportunities to meet other lodge owners, guides and colleauges working within the birding field. Amongst so many visitors to our stand, we received Luana and her team from the RJ State Environment Agency who intend promoting bird watching in the Rio State parks, Birdlife International Argentina partner Andres Bosse, Brazils renowned ornithologist Fabio Olmos, Betty Peterson from the ABA who came to talk about the US programm of providing binoculars for rangers and guides amongst so many friends. Guto de Carvalho, the organizer is to be congratulated for this great event.
