The video describes the Ara Project's efforts to help prepare Macaws to survive in the wild and shows how it took care of Geoffrey. The segment explains that the Ara Project has released over 100 scarlet macaws with more than an 85% survival rate, and ends with Geoffrey being released into the wild.
