The nesting and breeding season of macaws 2023 ended in Punta Leona with the flight of the last of the chicks that were in the artificial nest called Panama. This happened on June 14, which concludes a very productive cycle.
We are grateful for the efforts of Dr. Christopher Vaughan, creator of the Conservation Program, the organization The Macaw Society who carries out scientific research to preserve the species, the volunteer and field leader Roshan Tailor and our outstanding collaborator Pablo Venegas.
Without the work of each of these people, today we would not have the opportunity to see 12 more macaws flying in the skies of Punta Leona and the canton of Garabito.
We share with you the video of the last pigeon, minutes before taking flight.
The next season is expected to start in early October. Until that time the website that transmits 24/7 the monitoring cameras (www.lapasrojaspuntaleona.com) will be under maintenance and renovation.
We continue to support scarlet macaw regeneration.
