Saving Wild Scarlet Macaws

Updated: Dec 14, 2023

The “Hatched To Fly Free” Nursery Rehabilitation Facility provides specialist care to macaws and parrots leading to release back into the wild.

The Central American scarlet macaw are now critically endangered with extinction.

Habitat loss, population fragmentation, and illegal poaching for the black market have reduced their population in the wild and numbers today are estimated to be below 4,000.

The largest wild population is located on the Osa Peninsular Costa Rica with an estimated 2000 individuals surviving here. The reason for this is the mostly intact primary rainforest that engulfs the Peninsula.

The “Hatched To Fly Free Project” is working to establish a Rehabilitation, Release and Rescue Facility located near the Corcovado National Park. The facility will be the first of its kind in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica to provide specialized care to rear and rehabilitate confiscated, rescue and injured native macaws and parrots for release back into the wild.
