Red Bank Scarlet Macaw Conservation and Tourism Development Project
Red Bank Scarlet Macaw Conservation and Tourism Development Project
The highly endangered Scarlet Macaw, which has recently been determined to be a subspecies quite distinct from the Scarlet Macaws of South America, has apparently been making a comeback in the Red Bank area of the Southern Stann Creek District but is coming under increasing human pressures. It is within this backdrop that PfB has decided to make an intervention to assist the community of Red Bank in their conservation endeavors .The main goal of the project, therefore, is to strengthen the capacity of existing community groups and develop the financial incentives for conservation by supporting eco-tourism activities that will ensure the protection of the Scarlet Macaw, a keystone species.
