The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is a Caribbean cultural melting pot renowned for its Carnival, pulsating to the beat of steel drums, soca music, and calypso. But it’s nature at its finest that draws us in; it’s colorfully kaleidoscopic.   The size of Delaware, the two-island nation off Venezuela’s coast is home to 482 species of birds, 68 bat species, and 765 butterfly species. The islands really are an introduction to the natural history of South America.   Through…

Join BVAS for our Monthly General Meeting: This March, if rains have graced the Anza-Borrego Desert, an explosion will occur. Blooms of lily, primrose, and sand verbena will blanket the valley floor. Neon-colored Sphinx Moth caterpillars then emerge to decapitate the flowers. And thousands of Swainson’s Hawks will divert from their 6,000-mile migration to feast on the protein-and fat-rich larvae. Indeed, 2017 was such a year. Among the Swainson’s Hawks, word must have gotten out: 11,690 of these hawks were…

They live in or near our wetlands, ocean, sage scrub, chaparral, and woodlands. Each plays an important role and each is tied to the health of our local…
