Empowering Women to Save the Gorgeted Puffleg Hummingbird

The Gorgeted Puffleg Hummingbird (Eriocnemis isabellae) was discovered in 2007. Endemic to the Serrania del Pinche of Cauca, Colombia, this hummingbird species is critically endangered with a very small range, as its habitat is less than 10 km². Ongoing degradation of the hummingbird’s limited forest habitat is mainly the result of illicit crops, cattle ranching and agriculture.

Women for Conservation seeks to support the monitoring of the Gorgeted Puffleg hummingbird to be carried out by women from the community, who are leaders in conservation, allowing us to contribute to the evaluation of the population status of the species and identify key locations to be protected.
