Macaws are becoming increasingly threatened with endangerment and, in some cases, extinction largely due to poor reproductive rate and progressively higher levels of deforestation and exploitation. As a way to combat the dwindling populations, macaw preservation techniques have been implemented in some South and Central American locations. The Tambopata Macaw Project in the Madre de Dios region of Peru has been the leading force of this macaw conservation effort. Their efforts at supporting the proliferation of this species have included the protection and management of macaw habitat, the construction of artificial macaw nests, and the hand-rearing of macaw chicks in captivity for later reintroduction into the wild. The increasing level of human contact with the ecology of macaw species in Tambopata, Peru has raised some concerns about how beneficial artificial breeding and rearing strategies are to the overall conservation of macaws. In this paper, the negative and positive effects of artificial strategies of macaw conservation taking place in the Tambopata Research Center are analyzed in order to assess whether increased human care for the macaws in this region of the Peruvian Amazon

Tambopata Travel Life  Macaw Clay Lick Chuncho – 4 days

Clay licks and macaw conservation.The Tambopata Macaw project has been working hard to understand the links between the clay lick, nesting, tree phenology (flowering and fruiting) and the movements of parrots in and out of the area. Over a thousand mornings of clay lick observation and literally hundreds of thousands of registrations may be the largest set of parrot data ever assembled. We have come a long way in understanding these interactions and now have a much better idea of what drives the annual life cycles of the macaws and parrots in Tambopata. A summary of our new findings is presented in this paper.
