5:23 pm
mccall now techno is on a one of a kind mission looking to flee from a car graceful elegant and in some parts of the world in danger it's a race against time to pick. up top just yell down saying that she saw in lightning strike to see the species time to hurry up until tor is from an entomologist do much of my research in this jungle own and i'll share my fundings with merida davison she's an environmental biologist and dr chrystal deal with a molecular neuroscientist that's our team and i know it's do some science so as. big as welcome to techno i'm phil tours joined by dr chrystal de worth and maria davison so just picture this you were deep in the rainforest of peru when suddenly a flock of red and blue bag missing creatures takes off in front of you they are
5:24 pm
beautiful but let me tell you they don't start out so pretty you have to be talking about my cause i'm a bird biologist so in my day i've seen a lot of baby birds and i have to admit i mean they are bald and can be pretty ugly but i mean it's also ugly that they're cute because they're still associated with the rain forest kind of like their mascot but they're not so ubiquitous and are in there in a major species and they're at risk because of habitat lot of salut because when the habitat is in trouble these birds are in trouble and we join a team of scientists down there that are working hard to make sure it doesn't happen let's take a look. at. the lucid charismatic cause or undeniably stars of the rain forest and there's a special place in peru where it's still possible to see macaws and all their wild glory that is if you don't mind
5:25 pm
a little travel. and we're heading to the tumble ponds a research center a place so deep in the proving amazon it's taken us two days on this boat just to get there. there are six. species of macaws left in the wild down from more than twenty the populations of all of the species remaining are on the decline . seven such as the blue throated macaw in danger of becoming extinct why. because of deforestation close to three hundred thousand square miles of the amazon rain forest gone since one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. timber and were culture and mining. then there is the illegal pet trade it's not easy being one of the world's most beautiful birds pack these these juvenile cars and to bang to smuggle than
5:26 pm
and more than half of the an individual dying during this process. any hawkinson is the fuel leader for the macall project at the tumbled potten national reserve she's one of a team of researchers who are using science to save the macaws why study because our very special and their merry intelligent and yet they face a lot of threats and their habitats today's mission takes is deep into the reserves for those threads are constantly mad play where in the middle of the breeding season tumble part is essentially a giant laboratory in the wild six species of macaws inhabit this thousand plus where miles of rain forest rain is a constant in winter but too much rain can be a problem. today we're going to see how a pair of two week old macaw chicks are fairing the odds are against both of them survived examining the chicks is
5:27 pm
a delicate and daring operation. well lead veterinarian elizabeth pour through gives louis oh preps for the chick exams on the ground any hawkinson gets ready to climb to their nest above. i don't like heights but with ness close to one hundred feet up the team has no choice but to cause i'm. macaws like deep cavities high up in old growth trees those spots are hard to come by even in a protected force like. this scarcity of mess leads to deadly fights between investing more cop parents and other macaws looking for a home they will kill chicks if a well harm the parents and they may cause such a disruption that the parents might be unwilling to return to the nest that's why the macabre project is researching manmade mess like this one called mandy lou once any reaches the nest she opens a special door to access the chicks separate from the opening the adult macaws used
5:28 pm
to get in an element inside our first peek at the hope for the next generation of macaws. the frail pale chick is not what you'd expect but it is alive and any needs to get it down to the ground quickly safety is paramount for these vulnerable chicks any uses sanitizer on her hands to protect them from germs the bucket that will take them down is warmed with a hot water bottle because these chicks have no protection against the cold. dr porter to give lou your first ways the chick and then photographs it and yes this is what i'm a car looks like in the first weeks of his life no hint of the jungle beauty it will become this chick is the first of the two to hatch like it sibling it's named
5:29 pm
after its nest mandy lu. not been interested. in the city and there for them and there's a young fan on the wood nest like mandy lu have been a big success story a tumble parter. research has shown that more cars can raise chicks in vs just as well as they do in natural nests. the veterinarian takes detailed body measurements to determine how the chick is doing at this stage of development. the flying. then men dilute who is taken out and photographed next to its order sibling. is normal and then there are those between now and there's not a man now moment in which only one there on the eternal. no but i say you know it out of the earth. if you are in a car chick it's best to be first hatched because i'm
5:30 pm
a car mom typically neglects those that hatch later so the first chick that hatch says will receive all of her care and then the second tick that hatch as if she has enough resources so care for that check text number three and four will usually die from starvation. even chick number two has at best a fifty fifty chance of survival to open your own soul but i can most on this story and nothing anyone tell any fit in here at the menu of those doing. this but it isn't said that it is. there. today bought many chicks had a good check oh. there's a new kind of nest being tested out at tumble part it's made of cement soaked burlap researchers want to see if it's more durable than wooden nests which only last a couple of years in the jungle. sixty
5:31 pm
five same as yesterday but today things don't seem to be going well for these two chicks from the experimental nest neither shows signs of being fed by their parents and researcher liz pipe i am. is concerned i mean these because it's just the beginning of the day and maybe they come back from the clay and they're going to see them later no. time to get these chicks back home. research after sundown at the center can be challenging a generator provides electricity only seven hours a day. a good head lamp is your best friend along with your mosquito net to keep unwanted guests out of bed. and during meal time you have to keep an eye out for the occasional thief. this one
5:32 pm
targeted our techno crew. pretty good idea. this macaw is in a sense. near the center with his mate. they're both scarlett macaws a species that can live to the ripe old age of fifty in the wild scarlet macaws are doing well here but endangered in other regions in mexico less than two hundred fifty survived in the wild as of twenty thirteen the result of illegal pet trade and habitat loss. in a sense you will has little here of humans that's because a little over twenty years ago in one thousand nine hundred. six were chosen to be raised by hand at the center then released into the wild the macaws participating
5:33 pm
in the study are known as the chicos. the ones that these researchers. are going to die they remove them from the nest and raise them here what was the purpose cars were disappearing because the legal pet trade with. dooming cars were at a really high demand in north america and in europe they wanted to see a reintroduction of the cars as a viable option to save some of these populations the study was a success more than half of the stroller macaws released survived at least seven years in the wild some of these new cars still stick around the area and those more cars are the most aggressive with us because they have no fear that humans. and this morning the team is doing a check up on you know since you and your choice two chicks we don't like while macaws these parents don't leave when any climbs to the nest. getting chicks out when mom and dad are home and home is more than ninety feet up
5:34 pm
his show and you. get. it if they are. any use.
