Great Green MaCaws

28 Oct

Here in the southern Caribbean of Costa Rica there once lived the great green macaw, but through poaching and deforestation the bird has all but disappeared.  The Ara is providing reintroduction efforts for the Great Green Macaw that began in the South Caribbean region of Costa Rica in 2011, and continues to date with several dozen birds now living successfully in the wild.  In all 42 birds now call these mountains home.  To visit this project high in the hills just south of Puerto Viejo is a must see event.  These magnificent birds are a splendor to behold.
