Few parrots IUCN status update
Today I read about update status of six parrots:
  • Echo parakeet - vulnerable (VU)

This is the last parrot species which still lives in Mascarane. All other ones are extinct and this is a miracle that echo parakeets survived. In 1986 there were known only 10-12 these parrots. Hopefully this number increases. In 2008 were 362 echo parakeets.
  • Blue-fronted amazon - near threatened (NT)
  • Imperial amazon - critically endangered (CR)
Previous year hurricane destroyed population of imperial amazons.
  • Spix's macaw - extinct in the wild (EW)
They have been extinct in the wild since 2000 but there were a chance to find the last population. Now we are sure - all Spix's macaws are only in capitive. They will probably be release in few years
  • Blue-eared lory - near threatened (NT)
  • Wallace's hanging parrot - vulnerable (VU)
Green color means good changes, red - bad changes

All the bird breeders clubs should start to work more with the endangered species, because it ain't the zoo keepers that know how to breed them

Next sad news - I've just read an article about decreasing of Imperial amazons - in the wild survived under 50 of them and this is the smallest number in history of this species:(
