Hi

I am just sending this note to inform you that I have 2 vacancies for the trip to Brazil in November 2008.  We will be spending 12 nights in the Atlantic Rainforest and 4 nights in the Pantanal. There are 26 species of parrots in the 2 areas including Hyacinth macaws. There are also lots of other birds and wildlife at both locations. We will be going round nest sites with the Hyacinth macaw project team on one day checking on youngsters and we will get really close to them but generally seeing Hyacinth’s everyday in the Pantanal.
The price is £2600 each which includes all International flights (from Birmingham UK), all internal flights in Brazil, all transfers, all guides, all accommodation (lodges with air conditioned rooms and en-suite bathrooms), meals and drinks (non-alcoholic).
The full itinerary is on my website http://www.wildparrotsupclose.co.uk but if you have any questions please ask me by email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or phone me on +44 (0) 7766 303836

I have updated my website to include several more trips in the future and full itineraries will be added soon.
Also on my website is a short summary of the parrot survey and a donations page to help with the ongoing work at REGUA in the Atlantic Rainforest.
Thanks very much to everyone who has and is helping with this project.
All profits from my trips and talks goes towards the parrot project at REGUA. Since altering my website we have now been able to finance the building of the Observation Tower at Casa Anibel as listed in the Donations page and this should be built before we go to Brazil in November.

Happy parrot watching

Regards
Steve

Hi
Thanks very much for these details.
Unfortunately this trip is fully organised now and I do not think I can rearrange to go to Jardim although we are travelling via Campo Grande to get to Caiman lodge.
I am however arranging another trip to Brazil in 2010 which will visit the Bahia region for Lears Macaws as well as the Atlantic Rainforest and also the Pantanal. On this trip to the Pantanal I was hoping to visit other areas and the Red and Green Macaws will definately be on the itinerary.
Once again thanks very much, your comments have been very much appreciated.
Regards
Steve

Hi

Due to the highly successful trip to the Pantanal in November 2008 I will now be taking another group to The Pantanal and The Amazon as well as hopefully seeing the Green Wing Macaws at Buracos das Araras in October 2009. The full itinerary will be posted here very soon.
We saw 12 out of the 16 species of parrot most of them every day in the Pantanal and had a brilliant time with the Hyacinth Macaw project Team seeing Hyacinths everyday
6 out of the 10 people including Rosemary Low who came with me in 2008 have booked to go again on this extra trip.

I am looking for more information about Buracos das Araras to enable organising transport and accommodation somewhere close.

I await replies

Thanks in anticipation

Thanks once again for more information. I now have more details of Buraco das Araras and have someone who is willing to guide and transport our group on this trip. I am putting the full itinerary together now and will post it very soon.
You have given me more information and I will see if I can take it further for the good of the Red and Greens.

Hi Roelant
I have just replied to your other post and when I checked your flickr site I found the photos for Buraco das Araras and thought they were great. Looks a great place. I cannot wait to get there. I intend doing some snorkeling nearby as well.
Thanks
Steve

Nice ! I spent a full year in Caiman 1991, with Carlos Yamashita , fixing artificial nest boxes to Hms. At that time all Red and Greens of Jardim is dispersed due human pressure at the Hole (maybe trapping). I mean at that time(1991) no Macaws is founded there ! 15 years later the owner of the lodge rescue two chicks that came from a close area . He raised these birds and release them in this place. Now step by step other pairs become confident again and now re-colonize that traditional area, and use the cliff to breed. October is the best season. But also early November. This shows what positive actions could do ! I think that its very nice. I true believe in positive manegement of fauna, and this includes captive breed as conservation strategy, and this manegement was possible due captive techiniques developed along the years. Captive Chicks do very well in projects like this. It´s a good history to make a report ! Maybe is the best place in the word to photograph RGMs. Blanquillo in Peru is another one but you see Macaws at same level ! Jardim you could see pairs fighting for a nest from above and Macaws resting before sleep just in front of you…..

Note: I heard a rumour about a Lutino Red and Green free flying in this area, congregating with this group. But I have no opportunitie to travel and check this…..Maybe you could took pics from this lutino…...Who knows ???...In your next trip try to raise some more informations with locals .....this place is much more close to Campo Grande than Caiman in Miranda. 90 Km from Campo Grande. Try to locate it on maps and do a little study of the area before your true trip in 2010. Make a good plan !

Cheers .......

Hi,
I just read your posts and would be interested in visiting Buraco das Araras this September. Could you give me some tips on where to stay around the area of Jardim. My husband and I are planning a trip to the area, but we don’t want to do a tour, we are interested in renting a car and explore the area and its people, and find some amazing places with lots of parrots.
Thanks so much,
Patricia
