Blue-and-yellow macaws, upper right, scarlet macaws, center, and mealy parrots, left, swarm a clay lick in Peru's Tambopata National Reserve, part of a chain of protected areas with arguably the highest recorded biodiversity on the planet. The region may soon be bisected by a modern paved highway—the Transoceanica—connecting the Atlantic to the Pacific via Amazonia.
