HARPY EAGLE PROJECT

The National Program for the Conservation of the Harpy Eagle (Harpy Project) of the National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA) was initiated in 1997 and covers the entire country for the conservation of the species. The Program includes the Harpy Project of the Atlantic Rainforest because the harpy eagle can be considered as critically endangered within this biome.

HARPY EAGLE PROJECT

The National Program for the Conservation of the Harpy Eagle (Harpy Project) of the National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA) was initiated in 1997 and covers the entire country for the conservation of the species. The Program includes the Harpy Project of the Atlantic Rainforest because the harpy eagle can be considered as critically endangered within this biome.

A Population and Habitat Viability Assessment (PHVA) was carried in March 2017 for the harpy eagle organized by PNCGR, UFES, and CBSG with support from Parque das Aves and from the Bela Vista Biological Refuge and with a component facilitated by the Parque das Aves staff.

A PHVA workshop presents the scientific rigor of a Population Viability Analysis (PVA) that helps biologists and wildlife managers understand more clearly the threats that affect the population. The PVA effort is combined with innovative methods to help people organize and evaluate information on a wide range of disciplines and perspectives.

A Working Group for the Ex Situ Program was established as part of the harpy eagle’s PHVA. The feasibility of establishing an ex situ program for the conservation of the species in Brazil was evaluated using as a basis the document “Guidelines for the Use of Ex Situ Management for Species Conservation” from IUCN (IUCN/SSC, 2014).

The work included the following actions:

  • Revising the status of the species in captivity in Brazil and analyzing the threats
  • Identifying potential functions of ex situ conservation and how they can help reduce each threat
  • Evaluating the components and feasibility of an ex situ program
  • Evaluating the costs, risks, possibility of deployment, and expected impact
  • Preparing recommendations

In October 2018 a workshop was organized bringing together national and foreign maintainers in Foz do Iguaçu to define the creation of a cooperative management program having as partners Itaipu Binacional and Parque das Aves sponsored by Beauval Nature from France with the participation of the Parque das Aves team.

The results are part of an ongoing work to improve the population status of the Harpy Eagle, which Parque das Aves supports in various forms.

Nosso trabalho não pode parar.

Somos a única instituição do mundo focada no resgate, abrigo e conservação das aves da Mata Atlântica.

O Parque das Aves é privado e se mantém com o valor arrecadado dos ingressos, restaurante e loja. E devido à pandemia do Covid-19, essa fonte de renda está suspensa.

Seguimos cuidando das mais de 1.300 aves que vivem aqui, continuamos recebendo e tratando animais resgatados do tráfico e não podemos parar os projetos de conservação de espécies ameaçadas de extinção.

Ajude a manter vivo esse trabalho.
