Research and awareness raising in Colombia to protect the Yellow-eared Parrot

 

The Yellow-eared Parrot is an authentic jewel of conservation in Colombia. A unique bird that has its life linked to the wax palm tree. This palm tree has been threatened for various reasons linked to traditions. The Loro Parque Fundación has been financing the conservation project for this species since 1998 through various actions. The use of alternative elements to avoid damaging these palm trees, together with the awareness of the people who live in the places where they live, have achieved significant success in the conservation of psittacines. When their population censuses barely had a few dozen copies, at present their populations are close to 4,000 copies.
