The Puerto Rico Ornithological Society, Inc. (SOPI, in Spansh), is 501(c)(3) non profit organization founded in 1995. Since our inception, SOPI has been supported by volunteers and members dedicated to the conservation of Puerto Rico's birds and habitats. 


Throughout the years, SOPI has been an active participant in the conversation regarding the greatest conservation needs in Puerto Rico, promoting education and promoting conservation actions that affect change throughout the island. Our organization is known for promoting collaborations and affiliations with conservation-minded organizations in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
