After many years of support, the Birdwatching Tourism Round Table has established an institutional agreement with the Association of Private Natural Reserves in order to keep strengthen and encouraging birdwatching in Guatemala, especially within the Private Natural Reserves across the country.

Through this agreement, the Birdwatching Tourism Round Table is strengthening   and developing the birdwatching tourism in Guatemala throughout the Private Natural Reserves and the biological corridors in which the association is working with.
