MEETING:  Tuesday, 2nd August 2022


Sam Davis (our southern NSW delegate for 2022) will be presenting on –

'Ararinha-azul, the Spix’s Macaw – return from Extinction'

The last remaining wild Spix’s Macaw disappeared in the early 2000s, so it has been some 20 years since their extinction. Eight Spix’s Macaws were released back into the wild on 11th June 2022.

Sam travelled to Brazil to witness this momentous occasion – the de-extinction of Spix’s Macaw.

Come along and hear Sam describe the preparation, release and future plans for this amazing project led by the Association for the Conservation of Threatened Parrots (ACTP).
