What is a Quetzal?

Resplendent QuetzalThe national bird of Guatemala, the Quetzal can be found throughout Mexico and Central America. Although easily recognizable and iconic for its majestic colors and long, flowing plumage, the Quetzal has fame for being elusive and is the prized sighting of many an ornithologist and bird watcher.

Like the Quetzal itself, the individuals and organizations the Quetzal Award seeks to honor are often hidden and hard to find, yet make an incredible impression and life-changing impact on those with whom they come in contact.
