The Macaw Society operates mainly in the tropical lowland rainforests of South America in Peru. Our headquarters are located on the Tambopata River in the Department of Madre de Dios in the southeastern corner of the country. 

We currently work in partnership with the national parks service of Peru (SERNANP) and a local conservation NGO (AIDER) and operate from their local checkpoints inside the Tambopata National Reserve.

We travel by boat along the Tambopata river to monitor two of the world’s largest clay licks: Colpa Colorado and Colpa Chuncho as well as the 50 natural and artificial macaw nests and the plant phenology plots we study.
