Special appeal: help the Blue-throated Macaw with the World Land Trust
The blue-throated macaw is a bird that's critically threatened with extinction.
Less than 250 still exist in the wild, found in just 2 sub-populations within the Beni Savanna of Bolivia, and this habitat is vital to the survival of this striking parrot species. It's the only place in the world where Blue-throated Macaws are found in the wild. They depend on the trees for food and nesting.
Like so many other species on this planet, human activities are causing the logging of thousands of trees in this bird's habitat. The trees on which the Blue-throated Macaws depend are logged to create posts for fencing cattle ranches and reserves. The fences stop cattle straying; unfortunately they have to be replaced all the time because of humidity and fires. So more trees are cut down, affecting the macaws.
You can help the World Land Trust enrich the macaw's habitat by supporting their appeal and ensure the survival of this stunning macaw’s population in the wild.
