He is also a founding member of the Professional Association of Honduran Biologists and currently holds a seat at its Court of Honor. His recent academic book, "Pedagogic Potential of Birdwatching in Honduras" delves into how birds are empowering the people involved in the hobby, thereby creating self taught naturalists with strong environmental consciences.
