Increase Macaw nesting opportunities in Southern Peru

I and a Team of National Geographic photographers and other artists visited the Tambopata Candamo preserve in Southern Peru. Our goal was to capture the beauty and variety of Macaws and Parrots visiting the clay licks for supporting conservation articles and posters. I spent a month on platforms and hanging out of trees in the early mornings to capture this spectacular event when literally hundreds of Macaws drop in to eat the high mineral content clay.
