Based on research and observation, Laney Rickman had determined by the early 1990s that a flock of parent-reared Blue-throated macaws would be necessary to perpetuate their unique species culture in captivity.

However, after years of facilitating parent-rearing of Blue-throated macaws, her vision proved financially unsustainable while utilizing only personal resources.

The call went out in 1998 to family, friends, and other bird lovers. "Help us build a non-profit organization to benefit all birds, but one that can especially focus on saving the Blue-throated macaw from extinction."

Those Founding Donors listed to the right responded generously, and the 501 (c) (3) non-profit Bird Endowment was established. It was their seed money that made possible what Bird Endowment has become.

We thank each and every one.
