Video: Beauty of hummingbirds captured in flight

Hummingbirds filmed in flight on Margarita Island, Venezuela – you’ll be amazed how fast these small creatures beat their wings: it’s between 38 and 78 times a second

Local conservationists for AsociaciĆ³n Civil Provita are working on Margarita Island to protect its threatened wildlife, put at risk by unregulated mining that’s destroying the dry forest habitat.

With the support of a local fishing community, Provita have already created a protected nature reserve on the island – providing a safe haven for the endangered Yellow-shouldered parrot and other wildlife.

They are now galvanizing a green movement on the island; helping create social and environmental change within extremely poor communities, where illiteracy is high and environmental education non-existent.
