LANEY RICKMAN BLUE-THROATED MACAW FUND

 

Long-Term Sustainability of the in situ Saving the Blues Program

In August 2017, Laney Rickman died unexpectedly.  In honor of Laney’s life’s work and undying passion for environmental conservation and protection of the Blue-throated Macaw, part of Bolivia’s cultural heritage, the Bird Endowment, Laney’s family, Asociación Armonia (Bolivia), and the American Bird Conservancy (USA) partnered to establish the Laney Rickman Blue-throated Macaw Fund with the goal of sustaining long-term support for the Blue-throated Macaw and Nido AdoptivoTM nest box program in Bolivia. Your contributions support ongoing research and resource management in the expanding Barba Azul Reserve and Laney Rickman Reserve.
