SAVING THE BLUES 2012-13
Adoptivo™, with hopes that this might be the year we surpass previous participation levels, is now accepting participation in the 2012-13 Nido Adoptivo™ campaign. It is the sixth consecutive season of our Saving the Blues™ efforts in the
Blue-throated Macaw's home range in Bolivia.
After a successful 2007 introduction,
Nido Adoptivo™ program
for the 08-09 season was expanded into
a range on the Barba Azul Nature Reserve
while still maintaining the existing program
from the previous season.
Acquisition of Barba Azul Nature Reserve has
vastly improved the potential for conservation
of the estimated <>300-bird
This first-ever protected area for critically endangered wild Blue-throated
Macaws is the 11,555 acre ranch in their newly discovered
Bolivia. The preserve (here and here)
was acquired by Asociación Armonía and others. This
includes the survey area that greatly
increased the known occurances of the wild Blue-throated Macaw.
