houdini the macaw

Joined the family in 2016

Houdini joined our family in May 2016. At first he was a bit grumpy at the change of scenery, but with a little love he was soon part of the family. This rainbow-feathered friend was adopted from a family who could no longer give him the attention he needed after his primary owner passed away, so they contacted us to help. Houdini loves to give kisses and ride on shoulders.

Scarlet Macaws, once found from Mexico throughout South America, are now endangered in their native habitats. Planet Rehab seeks to change this with our Costa Rica Endangered Species Project where we plan to breed species at risk of extinction, including Scarlet Macaws, for release into the protected rainforest.
