Take a virtual trip to Uruguay’s coastal lagoons and get to know the wildlife that rely on South America’s working lands.

Can shorebirds—a fast-declining and vulnerable bird group—rest, refuel, and even nest on active cattle ranchlands? Join Manomet and filmmaker Exequiel Caldas for a special webinar presentation and learn how birds and ranchers can thrive side-by-side.

Caldas will share selected clips from his short film Back to the South, made in partnership with filmmaker Manuela Lopez, that showcase Uruguay’s breathtaking and biodiverse coastal habitat. You’ll also talk to shorebird experts who work on the ground with farmers in their communities. These strategic partnerships unveil land management opportunities that benefit both shorebirds and local economies.

Come for the stunning wildlife footage, stay for the engaging conversation. Shorebirds, Cattle, and Community is a free virtual event—reserve your spot now!
