Will you Give Chicks a Chance during this giving season?

You have the power to make a life-changing difference for the future of the macaws in Costa Rica.

Illegal poaching and habitat loss continue to cause problems for wild macaws and their young in Costa Rica. Secondary forests and the macaws’ slow maturing and reproduction cycles make for fragile populations in isolated parts of the country. Which means every chick is critical for the species survival.

Macaw chicks must overcome immense hurdles just to fly free:

  • Mary Ann made a dramatic 30 feet fall when her dead palm nest crashed to the ground
  • Rose was poached from the safety of her nest before she had a chance to learn how to be a bird
  • Reginald fledged from his nest but with no other trees in which to safely land, he collapsed to the ground and required immediate care

Your help is urgently needed – Please, donate today!

By donating through our partner World Parrot Trust, donations made from the USA and Canada can be declared as tax exemption. Donations will directly help Macaw conservation.

The Ara Project is dedicated to saving endangered Scarlet & Great Green Macaws. Our efforts are undertaken in conjunction with MINAE (Costa Rican Ministry of Environment and Energy) and we work hard to ensure the welfare of each individual bird in our care.

Our goals are to ensure the long-term future of wild parrots in Costa Rica, through restoring macaws to their historic range in Costa Rica, contributing to the scientific community, encouraging the protection of tropical forests, and educating the public to ensure the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations for many years to come.

We rely heavily on the support of volunteers and donors like you to make this happen. Please help us to help the macaws when you donate today!
