About This Project

The beautiful, yet endangered, great green macaw faces the loss of its habitat and the illegal pet trade. The small remnant population in Costa Rica, c.300 individuals, has not been assessed for any genetic problems. Feathers and feces will serve as DNA source to analyze the macaw’s genetic status in the country for the first time. The generated information is expected to strengthen current, and design new, conservation and management actions aimed to better protect the species.
