Conservation Biology Techniques Of Parrots And Macaws In The Peruvian Amazon

 

With Dr. Donald Brightsmigh, in collaboration with the Cayetano University in Peru, Rainforest Expeditions is making a field course on "Conservation Biology Techniques of Parrots and Macaws in the Peruvian Amazon between 1-9 March 2013 in Tambopata, Peru.

This is a field-based course in the south-eastern Peruvian Amazon on the natural history, biology, ecology, behavior, genetics, and conservation biology of parrots and macaws. The Psittaciformes are considered the most endangered large bird order in the world, approximately 26.2% of Neotropical species are classified as threatened (critically endangered, endangered, or vulnerable). This is why it is so important to teach students about this group and possibilities for their conservation.

Students will also be familiarized with scientific field research techniques from first hand of researchers of the Tambopata Macaw Project, a long-term research project on the ecology and conservation of macaws and parrots in the lowlands of south-eastern Peru. The Tambopata  Macaw Project has been working with wildlife and local communities since 1989. A long history of dedicated research and monitoring has provided many insights into various aspects of parrot and wildlife of south-eastern Peru.

This is a university-accredited course and is intended for enthusiastic individuals with keen interest  in  the  tropical environment. This course  is  suitable for M.Sc.,  undergraduate students in the last 3 years of their degree, and individuals who want to learn from experts about parrots and macaws of the Peruvian Amazon.

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

  • Understand concepts of general parrot biology and ecology.
  • Design and collect scientific data on wild populations of parrots and macaws.
  • Respond conservation issues in a tropical environment.
