Since 1989, Rainforest Expeditions has been an ardent supporter of macaw research through the Macaw Project. Viewing macaws is one of the most special experiences guests can have while they tour the Amazon rainforest at our lodges. But did you know that 20% of all scarlet macaws that hatch will die of starvation?
Greetings from Refugio Amazonas – I have just returned to our research site in Tambopata after a break, and have recently gone through HarpyCam´s footage of the past two weeks.
The Great Black Hawk, Buteogallus urubitinga, is one of the many birds of prey in the peruvian rainforest of Tambopata you will very likely see while boating up the river to the lodges.
