Hobby Bird Watching Panamá

Existe un tipo de turismo que cada vez toma más terreno en nuestro país, es el turismo de observación de aves o aviturismo. Panamá tiene un gran potencial para desarrollarse como un destino predilecto para este tipo de turismo, por la abundancia de especies que habita a lo largo del territorio istmeño, y además se le suman las especies migratorias.

Thanks to our friends from Panamabites who did this video for us. 


There is a type of tourism that is gaining more and more ground in our country, it is bird watching tourism or avitourism. Panama has a great potential to develop as a favorite destination for this type of tourism, due to the abundance of species that inhabit along the isthmus territory, and in addition to migratory species.

Il y a un type de tourisme qui prend de plus en plus de terrain dans notre pays, c’est le tourisme ornithologique ou l’avitourisme. Le Panama a un grand potentiel pour se développer en destination favorite pour ce type de tourisme, grâce à l’abondance des espèces qui peuplent tout le long de l’isthme, ainsi que des espèces migratrices.

Es gibt eine Art von Tourismus, die in unserem Land mehr und mehr an Boden gewinnt, es ist der Vogelbeobachtungstourismus oder Avitourismus. Panama hat ein großes Potenzial, sich zu einem beliebten Ziel für diese Art von Tourismus zu entwickeln, aufgrund der Fülle von Arten, die entlang des Gebietes der Landenge leben, und zusätzlich zu den wandernden Arten.

Sloth on a wire

We wonder how long it took the sloth to reach this precarious vantage point…

After a few tugs, the firefighter manages to separate the reluctant sloth from the pole.

As the crane begins to lower them back to ground, the firefighter holds the sloth at arms’ length as the sloth grasps onto the air looking for something to hold onto. The National Police of Panama did not state where the sloth was taken afterwards.

Sloths spend up to 15 to 20 hours per day on trees and it can spend 90 per cent of its life hanging upside down. They are considered to be the world’s slowest mammal, and move at an extremely slow speed of 0.15 mph. It would take them about a minute to climb only 6 to 8 feet however, they can move much faster in water.

This is the moment firefighters rescued a sloth that was clinging to a telegraph pole in Panama. The rescue took place in the township of Alcalde Diaz in the Republic of Panama on Wednesday, January 13.

In the video shared by the National Police of Panama, the sloth is seen hanging onto the utility pole as the firefighter tries to pull it away.

Sloths of several varieties can be found in Panama, including the brown-throated three- fingered sloths found on the mainland.

Just watch it…miracles for open eyes

We know – insects of all kinds are not for everybody – but they are crucial for the balance of our environment. Do you follow the discussion on bees ?
Well, there is a focus on them, as we harvest the work of their lives. As usual, the animals we do not need for our sustenance get less attention – and we deem them ugly or frightening. As always: beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

We can show you the hidden champions of our world!
