Spreads for web 4

Named for an avian diety in the local BriBri indigenous folklore, Pewe was soon taking to the skies alongside his parents. As thrilling as Pewe’s daily forays were, the flip side of the coin was only too evident. A Scarlet Macaw chick named Rose, hatched in a dead palm trunk near Punta Islita, was snatched from her nest by poachers in the dark of night. Her parents, too, were Ara Project-raised adults released to their once-natural habitat.
