Arara Azul Project

On assignment for World Animal Protection

Responsible Tourism Project documented in 2017

The Hyacinth Macaw is an endangered species found in Pantanal, Brazil. A group of female biologists is behind the success of this species recovery. Placing artificial nests and monitoring the development of the chicks, they’ve managed to increase the population rate as well as the scientific data and knowledge about the species. Their work is funded partly through small tourist groups who accompany them on their daily activities and guaranteed responsible tourism experience with wildlife. See a video of the project in the videos section.
