We invite you to take a look at an exciting new book developed by friends of PRO COSARA, "Field Guide to the Birds of San Rafael" now available in English at this link. Including plates and conservation information on over 400 species, this is the first complete guide to the San Rafael Reserve. All proceeds go directly to benefit our conservation efforts in the region of the Reserve.
