When Wild Macaw Association’s volunteers and staff study the Scarlet Macaws in the field, they are constantly observing species and ecological processes. Being based in a private biological reserve in one of the world’s most biodiverse ecosystems, tropical lowland rainforest, is a great opportunity for biodiversity monitoring. We keep track of observations in the field and organize field surveys to make species inventories.
Wild Macaw Association has worked with professionals and volunteers who visit to research biodiversity, ecology and conservation. We are working towards publishing occurrence datasets on GBIF, a platform for free and open access to biodiversity data, to contribute to a better understanding of ecology and biodiversity conservation in the Neotropics.
