Rare macaw's world population at 750
The Lear's Macaw (Anodorhynchus leari) is listed by the IUCN Red List as endangered in the wild. New discoveries of other populations and understanding reproductive habits have brought the current total to around several hundred birds and growing. Recently in 2010 and 2011 the Trust has been aiding biologist Erica Pacifico' work in Lear's reproductive biology at the species' second largest roosting and breeding ground at Canuduos Biological Station in Minas Gerais, Brazil. This work will focus on:
- details of egg laying
- numbers of fertile eggs
- hatching success of each clutch
- neonatal development
- predation indexes
- potential chick predators
- mortality and survival indexes
- incubation behaviours
- neonatal care
- nest protection
- criteria of nest selection
