Heartfelt THANKS
to our Supporters around the world!

Laney Rickman‘s passion for saving the critically endangered Blue-throated Macaw inspired people across the globe to join efforts in “Saving the Blues.” Countless donors have contributed to Bird Endowment and its projects since Laney and husband Jack Rickman founded the nonprofit organization in 1998.  An incredible number of people responded to letter campaigns, Facebook fundraisers, raffles at conferences, even challenged others to dye their hair blue or make a donation!


We are deeply grateful for the continued support since Laney died thereby helping us keep momentum going strong on the Nido Adoptivo project in Bolivia which she started in 2007. We would be delighted to have you on board as a donor and/or Sponsor for the 2021 - 2022 breeding season!
