Help restore wild Scarlet and Great Green Macaw populations in Costa Rica.

A WPT Partner, The Ara Project, is a Costa Rican licensed zoological park and non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of the two native macaw species of Costa Rica: the critically endangered Great Green or Buffon's Macaw (Ara ambiguus) and the Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao).

The project is home to over 150 breeding adult birds, who due to injuries and disabilities, could never survive in the wild. Following a gradual process of rehabilitation the birds have formed breeding pairs, and by employing captive rearing techniques and intensive aviary management they produce healthy genetically diverse offspring. These are the macaws which are hatched to fly free and are released into the wild, all in conjunction with Costa Rican wildlife laws.

We have been kindly donated a 2 ha property on the Nicoya Península in the North West of Costa Rica, which offers a suitable climate for the birds and availability of natural foods all year round. It is also a popular area for ecotourism and educational tourism that could provide financial sustainability for the project.

We are in need to fundraise for the facilities to continue to build the aviaries needed to house all our macaws. The Project is also in need of other related infrastructure to ensure the health of the macaws.
