Volunteers Needed: 2023 Biomonitoring of Scarlet Macaws


🍃 Its conservation throwback Thursday! Citizen science applications for the 2023 biomonitoring of Scarlet Macaws are currently being accepted; please contact us at fcd@btl.net or 823-2657 for further information on how to become a volunteer. The 2022 Scarlet Macaw nesting season ended with much success in the Chiquibul, thanks to a total of 13 volunteers that assisted in biomonitoring and the arduous work of the FCD Research Unit. By the end of the season, in September, a total of 24 macaws made it to the wild. With a population of approximately 350 individual parrots found in Belize, these young macaws will improve the natural population in the near future.
