Birds in the Ica desert

Birds in the Ica desert

 

For more than ten years, Agrokasa began the study and surveillance of birds in its operations centers (Barranca and Ica), given its importance as a pest control agent and seed disperser in addition to its beauty, joy and importance for ecosystems.

As a final product of these efforts, the book “Birds of the Ica Desert” was published, a document that brings together this knowledge and the experience of the company in both farms during that time horizon.
