One Earth Conservation

Dedicated to Protecting Parrots and Their Habitats 

One Earth Conservation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Currently One Earth has projects in Honduras (Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao) and Yellow-naped parrots (Amazona auropalliata)), Guatemala (Yellow-headed parrots (Amazona oratrix), Nicaragua (Yellow-naped on Ometepe Island), Guyana (Sun parakeet (Aratinga solstitialis)), and Paraguay (Hyacinth macaw (Anodorhynchus hyacinthinus) , the Blue-and-Yellow macaw (Ara ararauna), and the Green Wing macaw (Ara chloropterus)), and they are exploring new partnerships in Suriname and French Guiana in 2021. Rev. Dr. LoraKim Joyner responds to the call for support from the peoples and parrots of the Americas due to her thirty-three years working on front-line conservation in marginalized, and often violent, communities in Central America. There she has witnessed the rampant suffering and high death rate of hundreds of thousands of parrots that enter the global illegal wildlife trade annually. Once distraught at this overwhelming tragedy, and now empowered, Dr. Joyner and other volunteers fight back to nurture nature in its many splendored forms known as parrots.
