July 25th, 2018 - We received 500 Almond Mountian Trees from a private donar - The Great Green Macaws feed on seeds, fruits, hard-shelled nuts, and flowers, and they make seasonal movements throughout their ranges in response to the presence of fruiting trees. They are particularly associated with the mountain almond, or almendro tree, which provides food and nest sites for the bird across much of its range. The trees that have been donated will help support future generations of the great macaws in the area and many other birds and animal species.

Extremely exciting day for us today with the initiation of one of our top priorities. In a joint effort Our Planet Foundation along with researcher Carolina Sáenz Bolaños from the National University of Costa Rica (UNA), placed 3 trail cameras today inside the area of our farm we're converting into an ideal base (analogous reforestation system) for a thriving biodiverse ecosystem to thrive suitable for the jaguar and the great green macaws found naturally in our area.

Beautiful day here today on the Caribbean bringing together a shared experience of life generated through our "sponsoring a tree initiative" that will help ensure future food sources along with supporting habitat for our endangered great green macaws (Ara ambiguus) in the reserve. Thank you Cathy and Spencer for helping plant the Mountain almond trees with us as they are one of the main food sources for these great birds! This puts us within reach of our 500 tree goal.
