From the headline of Mongabay: Exceptional beauty, exceptional risk: New study reveals extinction dangers for parrots.
Known for their intelligence and extraordinary rock star-like appearances, parrots inhabit subtropical and tropical regions across the globe. They are one of the more well-known tropical bird species in the developed world, with appearances in popular culture ranging from their familiar role as a pirate’s talkative companion to colorful sports team mascots. These unique birds are valued for their beauty, companionship and intellectual abilities, making them a popular choice for household pets. However, their popularity comes with a great price.
