HELP: Your Donation Can Help Beautiful Wild Parrots in Honduras
Revered by the Maya, scarlet macaws once flew in abundance over much of Central America. Today their numbers have drastically fallen throughout Latin and South America, as the beautiful birds are under constant and sustained threat from deforestation and poaching. Born Free USA has partnered in establishing a biological research station in Honduras that aims to protect and monitor the scarlet macaws. Please consider making a generous donation to make this project a success for scarlet macaws and for the bird-loving people of Honduras.
