About this book

One third of the world's nearly 400 species of parrots are threatened with extinction or already close to it. These include some of the most spectacular and iconic bird species on the planet, such as the Hyacinth Macaw from South America, the Kakapo from New Zealand and the Orange-bellied Parrot from Australia. Parrot Conservation takes a detailed look at 30 parrot species and explains why they are endangered and the steps being taken to conserve them. Many of these chapters include highlights of the author's own time in the field working on and observing conservation projects related to the parrots' survival. These very personal accounts vividly bring to life the problems that parrots are facing.

Aimed at birdwatchers, conservationists, cagebird enthusiasts and a 'nature writing' readership, through engaging text and captivating stories Parrot Conservation aims to promote a wider interest in the plight and conservation of parrots, which is essential in terms of raising future funds for the many projects that require funding.

Parrot Conservation will also serve as an essential reference to all those people directly involved in parrot conservation, to understand the issues involved and the techniques – successful and unsuccessful – applied to date.
