The critically endangered Blue-throated macaw has been thrown a lifeline with the creation of The Barba Azul Nature Reserve. The Bolivian conservation organization Asociación Armonía, with support from the American Bird Conservancy and World Land Trust-US, has created the world’s first protected area, the Barba Azul Nature Reserve, for the Blue-throated Macaw, a critically endangered species with a population estimated at just 300 birds. The group purchased an 8,785 acre ranch in the grasslands of eastern Bolivia, a site with 20 Blue-throated Macaws during the breeding season.
