THE GUATEMALAN YELLOW-NAPED AMAZON PARROT (ARCAS - Wildlife Rescue & Conservation Association)

Status:
Seriously Threatened

Yellow-naped Amazons are parrots that live along the Pacific coast of Central America. They nest in the cavities of living and dead trees. Because they can mimic the human voice, Yellow-naped Amazons are a favorite bird of the pet trade.

Major Threats:
The population may have been reduced by as much as 95% in the last 15 years due to: deforestation and agriculture (especially sugar cane, palm oil and banana), cattle ranching and poaching for the illegal wildlife trade.

Your support will help:

  • identify and protect remaining parrot populations across Guatemala
  • educate local residents about habitat protection and rehabilitation
  • promote ecotourism and create a Parrot Pathway of the South Coast for wildlife viewing opportunities.

Project Location:
South Coast of Guatemala

Together, let's pave the way for the Parrot Pathway of the Guatemalan South Coast!
