The project combines research and conservation objectives. As a priority the team will investigate in which sites the macaws choose to breed, what types of trees and other habitat features are associated with nesting sites and what pressures impact successful breeding. Ongoing surveys will monitor the birds' population status. The team will concurrently work on an education programme aimed at schools and youth groups to raise awareness on the macaws and other wildlife, and will launch an initiative to involve local landowners as "private guardians" of the species.
