Jaruco, Mayabeque. The annual Endemic Bird Festival, which was developed at the Blas Roca Calderío primary school, the Escaleras de Jaruco community, and other educational institutions in the Tapaste village, was recently concluded in Jaruco.

Yucivyn de Sequeira, Technician in Environmental Education of the Protected Natural Landscape (NPP) Escaleras de Jaruco, said that on April 22, the children of the training group received talks on Environmental Education, Protected Areas and Flora and Fauna, in addition to creative competitions and exhibitions.

They also learned about the 28 endemic birds of our country, and the variety of species that inhabit the Escaleras de Jaruco, such as the carpintero churroso, the jabao, the Cartacuba, the sijú platenero, the totí, the paloma perdiz, the tocororo and three types of hawks.

Each year the specialists of the National Company for the Protection of Flora and Fauna, located in the Equina Escaleras de Jaruco Unit, promote this initiative promoted in the country by the Caribbean Bird Study and Conservation Society, in pursuit of knowledge and conservation of the avifauna endemic to the Caribbean region.
