I designed these 5” x 7” glossy note cards for the Parrot Resource Centre (of which I am a volunteer director) to help raise funds to support Parrots International Lear’s Macaw Corn Subsidy Project:
...In the course of feeding on a farmers' corn crops, the Lear's Macaws will often break the ears off of the corn stalk, fly to an adjacent sentinel tree, and then begin to eat the ear, dropping and wasting more than they consume. For these farmers cultivation of any crop is a struggle; they grow only enough to feed their families and goats. They do not have the modern advantages of irrigation, fertilizer or farm tractors. Therefore, the farmers see the Lear's Macaws as pests, taking food from the mouths of their children and family. The result is that “death by farmer” has become a very real threat to the Macaws....perhaps a greater threat than poaching and habitat loss. We do not reimburse in cash, rather in corn or corn vouchers. Thus, the Lear's Macaw becomes an asset, rather than a liability to the farmer. The farmer can let the Macaws feed, knowing that he will be compensated.

Blank for your own message, these note cards are perfect for any occasion. There are four different photos in each set of four.
