Guaras en Libertad La Belleza Regresa

The Scarlet Macaw population is being cared for and protected by an upcoming generation of educated children and adults whose interest is in preserving the birds as a visual and tourist attraction in the wild.  It has developed an environmental conservation ethic among the inhabitants of Copan who take pride in their unique resources.  This project has broken the current chain of trapping and killing of Honduras’s own rich heritage of resident Scarlet Macaws.  From 2011 through 2017; 8000 children participated in the educational program.  This project is the only one of its kind in the world that exists where a wild population of Scarlet Macaws lives in such close proximity to a populated valley.  Education administered and funded by the Copan Association along with its sister organization the Copan Maya Foundation has produced a caring population brought up to protect them now and in the future
