45 Great Green Macaws released back into the Wild

​Wonderful project 
Very successful conservation organization Ara Project which is focused on breeding and releasing of Great-green Macaws (Ara ambiguus) has increased the wild population on 350 individuals. Since 2011, when the Ara Project started with conservation activities, they have released 45 birds from which 35 survived. Administrator of the rescue station, Duaro Mayorga, said this to daily El Diario.  The station is found in natural reserve Manzanillo, region Limón in south of Costa Rica.

„50 years ago the Great-green Macaw became extinct. Now we try to put it back,“ said Mayorga.
