When you Symbolically Adopt a Macaw, your gift supports programs to protect wild Macaws, provide artificial nests, plant trees, and care for rescued breeding Macaws. When you adopt, you receive a digital adoption certificate, a welcome package, and periodic updates. Dedicate your gift to a loved one. Nyala is a female Scarlet Macaw who was donated to the project back in the s. We could see she was an incredibly intelligent and inquisitive bird, so we wanted to give her a chance at life in the wild.
Unfortunately, a month after her release in Tiskita in she had to be rescued and has not been released again. Luckily though, she has found love! Together with Simba, who is also a rescue, she has hatched four chicks in our Captive Breeding Center. The most recent youngster, Blue, hatched in and is now ready to be released into the wild. Although Nyala was given a break from breeding ina nest box was provided within their private enclosure late in and the breeding season brought a chick for Nyala and her partner.
Parrots are long-lived birds and they mate for life. By adopting Nyala, you are helping care for rescued macaws like her, supporting our captive breeding and release program and contributing to overall Scarlet Macaw conservation. Walt is a Great Green Macaw chick. When he first hatched in a natural cavity high up in a Mountain Almond tree in northern Costa Rica, his eyes were closed and he was completely bald and helpless. His parents were very attentive to his needs, but when breeding Macaws leave the nest to search for food, chicks like Walt are vulnerable to snakes, toucans, and poachers.
When they fledge at three months old, they face even more challenges: when they are first learning to fly they sometimes crash land and become injured.
In most cases, they would not survive without help. By adopting Walt, you are supporting our wild population monitoring program, where we closely monitor and protect wild-hatched chicks and their parents. Named after the scar on his face, Scarface was part of the first group of Scarlet Macaws that were released into the Punta Islita valley in He and the others in the group had to learn the difficult task of where to find local foods and natural nest cavities. Luckily Scarface, being inquisitive as he is, did extremely well. Not only was he finding food on his own, but he was also the first to breed in the wild!
He and his partner Elvira have attempted to breed every year sincehowever, they tend to choose dead palm trees to nest in, which are extremely vulnerable to the elements. Inthey successfully hatched two chicks but unfortunately their nest flooded in a storm. Only one of the two nestlings survived the tragedy.
Now the pair is getting ready for another breeding season and we hope that they will pick one of the artificial nests we have installed to increase breeding success, instead of the palm trees they tend to choose. By adopting Elvira and Scarface, you are helping released Macaws establish and breed in the Macaw parrot for free adoption, bringing back these species from where they went extinct.
Great Green Macaws are highly dependent on intact forest and the Mountain Almond tree in particular. To conserve the Macaw, we need to conserve the Mountain Almond. And although some of this has been recovered naturally, the Mountain Almond tree is still threatened with extinction. Our reforestation efforts have only kicked off inbut over trees have already been planted in protected areas! By adopting a Mountain Almond tree, you can help secure a future for the Macaws in which they have food and nesting opportunities for many generations to come.
