Our History


San Pancho Birding Observatory has its roots in the San Pancho Birding Club (2007-2010) which delivered educational tours for local youth at the elementary and middle-school in San Pancho. During those years, the club introduced many local kids to birding and started to explore and lay the groundwork for birdwatching tourism with regular outings over weekends for locals as well as national and international visitors.

The Club transitioned into Birding San Pancho (2010-2011) which was envisioned as a conventional ecotourism business that offered birding and nature tours without necessarily undertake conservation efforts. ​In 2011 our founder, Luis Morales, joined the Western Working Group of Partners in Flight which inspired him to create the initiative of the San Pancho Bird Observatory and continue doing an effort in conservation and doing projects in favor of the region´s touristic and ecological sustainability.
