Baby macaw that fledged its nest alongside parents
We’re writing to share some exciting updates about our efforts to save the cyanoptera macaw. Because of your donations, we’ve made incredible progress! Here are some of the amazing events that have taken place, as well as information on an upcoming project, all thanks to your support.
For the first time in four years, a cyanoptera macaw fledged its nest! Our team (along with the help of the macaw’s parents) worked tirelessly for 90 days to ensure that the baby was safe from poachers and growing as it should. We thank you for believing in our work and allowing us the opportunity to save the macaws!
As a result of a successful nesting season for the macaw, our team threw a party for the junior rangers to celebrate! The celebrations included meals made by the community and piñatas for the children. Our junior rangers were also awarded with certificates for their devotion to conservation.
We’re preparing for an upcoming project and we need your help in making it a success! Though the macaw population is around 14 right now, we are relentless in our efforts to save the beautiful bird. We plan to introduce nest boxes to attract more nesting pairs in an effort to increase the population. We can't do this without your support.
Lastly, July Bonus Day has begun! GlobalGiving will be matching donations over $100 while their remaining $400,000 in matching funds is still available. We hope you'll use this opportunity to support our work and our planet!
Because of you, a baby bird fledged its nest for the first time in years. We are hopeful for the future of the cyanoptera macaw, and we thank you for investing in the many more that will flutter their wings as we continue our tireless work.
