Papagaio-verdadeiro

Step 2: Learn more about the species

The Turquoise-fronted Amazon Project was created in 1997 by Dr. Glaucia Seixas, who still coordinates the actions for the preservation of the species. Currently the project, which is based in Campo Grande (Mato Grosso do Sul), has the support of the Claravis Institute / Parque das Aves for its execution and the Neotrópica do Brasil Foundation for its co-execution. This year it also counts on the partnership with Naples Zoo, Refúgio Ecológico Caiman and NuTropica, along with Amigos do Louro.

The Turquoise-fronted Amazon is the species that every year suffers the most from the decrease of offspring in the natural populations. Thousands of nestlings are stolen from the nests to supply the illegal pet trade, in Brazil and abroad. This occurs mainly because this parrot is considered to be the “best talker” among all the Brazilian psittacidae species.

The situation is aggravated by traffickers who break into or even knock down nests to get nestlings (currently there are also records of looting of eggs). This creates two irreparable losses for the species: the loss of nestlings and the reduction of available nests for reproduction in the following years. The end result is a decrease in the natural populations in several Brazilian states.
