URGENT! PLEASE HELP! We are Intertwined Conservation a non-profit working to preserve wildlife and wild places in Costa Rica by supporting parrot conservation through education, rescue, and reintroduction. Our rehab field team on the Osa Peninsula are in desperate need of your help! A group of juvenile rescue parrots have recently joined our Osa flock at Hatched to Fly Free (HTFF) a couple weeks ago. These individuals were rescued by MINAET (Ministry of the Environment, Energy and Technology) the institution responsible for implementation, management and the administration of biodiversity in Costa Rica. MINAET brought these rescues including: 7 brotogeris (parakeets), 5 autumanalia (amazons), 1 aratinga (conure) and 1 pionus to a sanctuary in San Jose. Their next stop was the Osa, with HTFF where they will spend approximately two months in aviaries prior to release.


Unfortunately, we do not have enough aviaries! We need to build two more aviaries ASAP, one for amazon parrots and one for parakeets and small parrots. Similar aviaires to the one shown below that was built for large parrots like the scarlet macaw. We need to raise $5,000 in order to build both aviaries but we are going to start with just one first, the aviary for Amazon parrots at the cost of $2,500.


The first two generous people that donate $1,000 will be given the naming rights to the two scarlet macaw chicks  currently getting ready for release back out into the wild.  These two scarlet macaw chicks were poached as chicks and rescued by HTFF a couple months ago.  


With your generosity we will be able to not only provide these 14 juvenile parrots with adequate space to call home while they get ready for realease back out into the wild but they will also be homes for future rescues to come. Thank you so much in advance for your donation and helping rescue these beautiful birds! If you are unable to donate please share our campaign with others that might be interested.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

Good afternoon friends of ICC! I know it’s been a while since we have updated everyone on the aviaries but they are complete and already quickly filling with rescues. We cannot thank all of you enough for your kindness and support on this project!

Thank you again to everyone who helped us make more homes for our rescue parrots in Costa Rica!
Our team just recently got back from Costa Rica and we were able to see first hand where all your donations have been going! First, there is an aviary that was built months ago with the first round of donations that was added on to the house and once the larger aviaries are built it will become the hospital ward aviary. Second, while we were there we saw where the second round of funds went, all the supplies have been purchased to build a much larger flight aviary that can be split into separate holding spaces for different species that come in. Right as we were running out of funding a kindergarten class at Innovations Academy surprised us with $237 that the kids had fundraised for! This was amazing and we were able to pay the contractor while we were there and things have just started going up this week! So exciting! We can't thank everyone enough! We will keep you updated as everything gets finished up.

Happy Holidays to all our friends and family out there helping us make a difference in wildlife conservation!
Wanted to thank everyone for their support this holiday season and give a quick update from the field.
Rosie the Red Lored Amazon has been relesed! After going missing for 3 days post release, we were getting a little worried. But we are happy to report with a little encouragement and help from Shussy the Crimson Fronted Parakeet and the HTFF team, Rosie made it back to the feed stations, a little hungry, but definitely enjoying her new found freedom!
With all the rain that Costa Rica has experienced over the past month, the wildlife has been struggling. Some local farmers found a very weak and skinny adult Scarlet macaw walking in an open field a couple weeks ago and immediately brought her to our HTFF rehab center. She has been responding well to treatment and becoming a very good eater!
The new release aviary is under construction and coming along nicely but we got word last week that 24 more amazon parrots are on their way to our rehabilitation center and we are desperately in need of making even more release aviaries, at least two more to accommodate everyone comfortably! We will keep you updated on their arrival and their story once we know more.
Last thing, if you need a last minute gift and have no idea what to get, consider making a donation in a loved ones name! There is no better gift than the gift of preserving wildlife and their habitats so that it's around for future generations to cherish.

Happy Holidays and an enormous thank you from all of us at Intertwined Conservation Corporation and Hatched to Fly Free!

I volunteered with Chris and Jenny several years ago, as they were transitioning The Ara Project to Punta Islita. I've seen their skill with macaws first and. I know their intense dedication. I have high confidence that Hatched To Fly Free will continue to grow and succeed, so I know my donation is well spent.
