The Aviary "Esperanca"or Hope is part of a project under the auspices of Ariau Jungle Tower Hotel President - Dr. Ritta Bernardino. This project includes an herbarium housing medicinal plants traditionally used in the Amazon region, an orchidarium, including a collection of bromeliads common to the Rio Negro and an Amphitheater where traditional Amazonian music and dance are performed, as well as seminars regarding the ecology of the rainforest are presented. A museum is currently being built sponsored by the National Institute of Amazon Research (INPA), which will house a collection of indigenous crafts as well as samples of the many traditional uses of plants and trees by local natives. All construction is done in the regional manner with minimal disturbance to the environment

The "Aviary of Hope" is a wildlife rehabilitation program designed to reintroduce endangered species back into their natural habitat - the rainforest. Over the past year Ariau has been receiving animals and birds that have been confiscated by the police from black market trade.

A thrilling moment for visitors to Ariau, as well as the permanent staff is the day when one of the animals may be released.. A special ceremony is announced so that all may participate in the delight of watching one of nature's own return to the wild.
