Acid Bill

This Keel-billed Toucan had acid poured on it’s beak – luckily the beak has began to grow back and at this point in time is looking much better.

Update from Proyecto Asis: The toucan can now pick up food and feed itself, great progressfullsizeoutput_66dc

Illegal Pets

It is illegal to own a parrot as a pet in Costa Rica – unfortunately, many people still do and can often mistreat and then try to get rid of them.

Proyecto Asis takes in these mistreated parrots and slowly nurses them back to health. They go through several stages as they prepare them for release which includes different diets and progressively being placed with more parrots in larger cages.  This specific one is in the final stage before being released – and was letting me know he was ready to be free.

So much easier to closer to birds in city areas where they’re used to people
