 What a Great Day to Save a Parrot

Tuesday, October 31, 2017
In Brazil and in the world several species are at risk of becoming extinct, including Amazona vinacea, popularly known as the vinaceous-breasted amazon. Its main threats are human actions such as illegal poaching and habitat destruction, so research and interventions are needed to prevent this endangered species extinction. One of the places where the Vinaceous-breasted Amazon was considered extinct is the Araucárias National Park, located in the West of Santa Catarina State, Brazil.

Since 2010, we have been dedicated to the first parrot reintroduction effort in a Brazilian National Park approved by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio). Our goal is to reintroduce A. vinacea in the region, giving it the social-environmental support necessary for the establishment of a viable population. 

Please consider making a donation and reversing local extinction.
