Audubon at Gelee Beach Festival

This week the Audubon Center had a tent at the annual Gelee Beach Festival in Les Cayes.  We were in the Agro-Artisanale section organized by American University of the Caribbean graduates Willina and Edline.  They did a great job of bringing together Haitian arts and food products, and several agriculture and natural resource officials from Port au Prince were present.  Many people stopped by the Audubon tent, where AUC students Jephte, Reuben, and John Kelly introduced them to the importance of Haiti’s bats and birds.  We were also interviewed by several television stations, and were asked to appear on a local education program!
