Carla and Thiago sent to NEST in Brazil
Carla and Thiago the two Spix's Macaws bred at ACTP last year
Have learned that Carla and Thiago, the two Spix's Macaws bred at ACTP last year and with whom I was photographed last September when I went to Berlin for the FbP annual convention - see report below on 19th September 2014 - have been sent to NEST in Brazil to be part of the re-introduction project of the Spix's Macaw Recovery Programme. This happened on 3rd March, the World Wildlife Day. In return ACTP has been sent a female Spix's Macaw - Turquesa - who was bred at Loro Parque and later sent to Brazil. ACTP hatched three more Spix's Macaws in January of this year. They are doing well.
