Red Bank Project
A community managed Scarlet Macaw monitoring program was established in the village of Red Bank, a PfB Wings of the America’s community-based bird conservation program, located in southern Belize. This monitoring program is centered on gathering baseline data on the arrival, movement and behaviors of the Scarlet Macaws. The data indicates that the Scarlet Macaw commence scouting the area around mid-November of any given year, arrive in Red Bank Village around the end of December, and depart from the area by early April of the following year. This information has helped plan protection activities and schedule avi-tourism activities focused on the Scarlet Macaws.
