festivities have taken place in Trinidad, where headdresses and sombreros
feature strongly in the local celebrations.
The presence of Loro Parque Fundación has been decisive, as it stressed the importance of using artificial feathers on these headdresses so as not to harm the local wildlife. Loro Parque Fundación’s appearance at all the most important celebrations of the year for the inhabitants of Trinidad, Bolivia, the habitat of the Blue-throated Macaw (Ara glaucogularis), has been welcomed by the community, and the Illustrious Town-Hall has given strong support to the work through Aves Bolivianas, the local partner, which is enthusiastically putting the project into effect.
The new cultural interpretation centre in the town was host to several events, while at the Beniano Fine Arts Institute a huge variety of headdresses were displayed with an educational exhibition informing about the benefits of this project for the Bolivian macaws through which thousands of birds have been saved.
