Aruba Birdlife Conservation is making a plea in this film for the Burrowing Owl, our ‘Shoco’ to become Aruba’s National Bird. Bird Wildlife is still not protected in Aruba. This is an effort to start the conservation of Aruba’s bird wildlife. You can help make a difference.

For more information about the campaign to have the Shoco designated and protected as Aruba’s national bird, send an e-mail to aruba.birdlife.conservation@gmail.com.

    Hi, first of all let me introduce myself, I work for Royal Resorts Caribbean the company that manages Costa Linda Beach Resort. I’m the ecommerce coordinator and I was surfing the web when I found this website http://www.greenantilles.com/2011/03/08/the-shoco-for-arubas-national-bird/ that has The Shoco Bird video and your contact information.

    This bird looks spectacular, I show it to my boss and we want to help and join the conservation effort on this great creature, or as you said “help make a difference.”

    For this reason we are very interested in showing this video in our local in-house resort channel so our guest can watch it. I will like to know if it is possible to use this material, and also if you have more information about the campaign to have the Shoco designated as Aruba’s national bird. If it is possible we can customize a small resort tv spot with this video and we can also add extra content.

    Please let me know what do you think about it.

    Kind regards
    Marcela

    I saw these amazing little birds for myself when in Aruba in October of this year. Took some awesome pictures of them also. Even on in a burrow. It made my trip that much more exciting than every other time I’ve been to Aruba. My favorite place to be!
