Conservation

With nearly one third of parrot species threatened in the wild and millions of birds needing proper care in captivity, there has never been a better time for you to take action to save parrots.

Research has shown that as a group, the parrot family — Psittacidae — has a higher percentage of endangered species than any other bird family on earth.

Collar et al. (1994) have identified 90 species of parrots that are at risk of global extinction.
