About This Project

Scarlet Macaw populations are declining due to illegal trade and habitat loss 1, 2. Unfortunately, macaws lay 2-4 eggs, but fledge only one/two chicks, letting the others starve to death. Last year we used chick fostering to save 11 chicks from starvation. This year we will refine our techniques to make them better and simpler, to encourage other parrot conservation projects to use these techniques to aid the recovery of endangered species of macaws & parrots throughout the Americas and beyond.
