Audubon Society and the Inter-American Development Bank. He was able to
bird with several of the graduates of the Advanced Training Course. John
will talk about the new opportunities for birding ecotourism and will
illustrate his talk with his photos.

John Sterling is a wildlife biologist and consultant whose clients include
The Nature Conservancy, National Audubon Society, the Center for Natural
Lands Management, CA Department of Water Resources, The Kern Water Bank and
the Smithsonian Institution. He was a former staff avian ecologist at the
Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center, and for several universities and US
Forest Service research labs in additional to working for two environmental
consulting firms in California. John is a diehard birder since 1971 and
loves teaching his identification workshops and leading his international
tours (spots open in 2018: Morocco and Paraguay).
