Project

The Macaw reintroduction project has released 71 macaws over the last 10 years. The project has been very successful with breeding pairs having young for the last 5 years.

The Sea Turtle Restoration Project has been ongoing for the last 15 years. It aims to protect sea turtle eggs from being poached and to increase the survival rate of the baby turtles. Both projects have to be monitored and data collected. Binoculars, cameras and GPS are needed to track the macaw’s behavior and GPS and torches are needed for ongoing fieldwork in the sea turtle project.

Needs

Field Devices:
Batteries of All Sizes, Binoculars, Digital Camera (Small) with Memory Stick, GPS (Handheld), Torches/Flashlights

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of July 29, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
