The Amazon Binocular Project was launched barely a month before Lucio Pando, our friend, mentor, and guide, passed away last week. Lucio was a wonderful Amazon bird guide who dreamt of sharing his passion for birds with local Amazon school children. Unfortunately, Lucio did not have adequate access to binoculars for the children. We wanted to do something about that. Now Lucio's legacy must be carried on by other Amazon bird guides who had been working with him. We would love to present these guides with a quality classroom set of binoculars next summer. Please share this link to the Amazon Binocular Project with your friends so we can make it happen.
