Birders' Exchange

The Birders’ Exchange Video is a video brochure designed to explain how people can help with donations of used equipment (binoculars, tri-pods, scopes, cameras, etc.) that in turn can be sent to people in Central and South America that have little or no equipment. The video explains how the program was started, how you can help, who receives the donated equipment, and why it’s so important that we help with such a project. The Birders’ Exchange program is run by Betty Petersen of the American Birding Association. For more information visit Birders’ Exchange.
