At the moment we are building contacts and brainstorming future projects.  If you would like to contribute your ideas, please contact us.  

We have a community monitoring program starting up 2013 in Queretaro, Mexico.   Please donate!!  If you wish your donation to go towards a particular aspect of the project, please contact me.  Some aspects now are (1) equipment that will stay with the community such as binoculars, notebooks, pencils, stopwatches, etc, (2) mapping natural resources and feeding areas of Macaws, (3) Macaw management plans developed from data and input from the community, (4) resources such as field guides, books, and literature for the community library and macaw center, (5) materials for environmental education, (6) materials to document progress and facilitate community meetings.   Of course if you want your donation to go elsewhere; that can happen too! 

Research was conducted in El Triunfo Biosphere Reserve, Chiapas, Mexico in 2011.  Please see publication on some aspects of the research project:
