Sustainable protection of breeding habitat of the Critically Endangered Blue-throated Macaw (Ara glaucogularis) in Bolivia.
by Tjalle Boorsma, Asociación Armonía
This project has been completed and the final report is available here.
The aim of the project is to sustainable protect the Blue-throated Macaw breeding habitat within a new protected nature reserve.
The 681 Ha reserve will be purchased in August 2018 to protect the most important nesting area of the Critically Endangered Blue-throated Macaw in Bolivia. Armonía’s
successful nest box program has produced over 70 chicks fledge from this forested area, demonstrating the importance of this site.
By educating local communities of the importance of the Blue-throated Macaw, and by establishing low-impact tourism and ranching within the reserve, we will be able to ensure its protection forever.
