Scarlet Macaw Parrot Program In Our Back Yard Golf Course -Costa Rica.

Updated: Feb 23, 2021

Whether you’re playing a round of golf, strolling the grounds or even just relaxing in your backyard, it’s hard to miss the distinctive squawk and bright flash of color from the Scarlet Macaw, your feathered neighbor in our community Los Delfines.

The sanctuary was founded 18 years ago, and is situated on 2.5 acres just outside of Los Delfines, this program was created to ensure the preservation and survival of the Scarlet Macaw – endangered, largely due to poaching – through the coordination of controlled reproduction.

In 2007, the first 10 Macaws were released into the Los Delfines community and to-date, 170 Scarlet Macaws have been released and are living freely, in and around Los Delfines. In fact, because there are now so many of these beautiful birds living and nesting throughout the Tambor area, developers and local hotels are getting involved through donations, ensuring the continued success of this program for many years to come!

Imagine golfing on the worlds only golf course that is host to 170 freed scarlet macaws flying around as you play. This is definitely an exciting experience for the golf enthusiast.
