The Laney Rickman Reserve is a newly established, 1,680-acre protected area in central Bolivia, supporting savannah and tropical forest habitat. It also contains the most important known nesting area of the Critically Endangered Blue-throated Macaw, which was the primary reason for Asociación Armonía to purchase the land in August 2018 with support from American Bird Conservancy and other international groups, including International Conservation Fund of Canada, IUCN Netherlands, and World Land Trust.
Armonía has named the reserve after Laney Rickman, a person who dedicated much of her life to saving Blue-throated Macaws in the wild by supporting a nest box program on the land purchased for the Reserve.
There are currently limited facilities at the Reserve and it is best visited as a day trip, departing from the nearby town of Trinidad, the provincial capital of the Beni department. In addition to the Blue-throated Macaw, you have the opportunity to see other macaws, such as Blue-and-yellow Macaw, Red-shouldered Macaw, Chestnut-fronted Macaw, Red-and-green Macaw, and Yellow-collared Macaw.
