LEE COUNTY, Fla -- Some of the beautiful birds showcased in the new movie 'Rio' are living in Lee County and you can see them this weekend.
Bobbie Henderson has been interested and breeding macaws since the 1980's. Apollo and Maui are the forth and fifth baby in her breeding experience.
By the time the birds are 12 weeks old, they're fully grown. Henderson said there are only between 2,500 and 5,000 of the rare birds left in the wild.
Henderson hopes the new animated movie will bring awareness to just how special the macaw really is.
"These birds are a treasure. We have to keep them to where they are not going to be extinct someday so this movie is going to bring a lot of attention to these birds and conservation," said Henderson.
If you'd like to see Apollo and Maui, they'll be on the red carpet at the Bell Tower Shops from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
Henderson will be there with handouts and kids are welcome to have their pictures taken with the birds
