A previous report from REGUA, told of REGUA's re-introduction project of Red-billed Curassows (Crax blumenbachii), where captive bred birds are being released at the reserve in Brazil. The birds are fitted with transmitters so that their movement can be tracked. Up to September this year, REGUA has released a total of 28 curassows (15 females and 13 males) and they have just sent a new report on the progress of the birds.
