Projects for the period 2018-2022:

1. Coordinate with all researchers and members in the area to see what they are doing and what they are interested in doing together. Disseminate this information. Form a plan from this integration of other voices.

2. Support the formation of working groups for particular species to meet on email, facebook, or video conferencing. For instance, we need a specialists group for A. oratrix / auropaliata in Central America, and macaws in Central and South America.

3. Support the formation of a section of our group (across regions) dedicated to wildlife trafficking.

4. Support the formation of a section of our group dedicated to population monitoring techniques and plans on how to fill in holes and vulnerable areas.
