Around the exercise of guided and bird watching, I have been able to tour Colombia and develop tools that have allowed me to create new narratives around the conservation of Colombian ecosystems and, in turn, how the need to differentiate has been identified in this exercise. Bird watching and avitourism, are practices that share similarities but meet different needs of tourists interested in this beautiful activity. In this way, I have developed experiences according to the particular needs according the visitor’s intention, structuring in particular, experiences linked to environmental education from pedagogical mediation in the field, thus generating activities around Biotourism. In this way, projects such as the 1st and 2nd Bogotá Bird Tourism Festival were born, extending this work with experiences around accessibility and inclusion mainly for people with visual and hearing barriers.
