Spix's Macaw LPF symbol

Since 1990, the Foundation Loro Parque Foundation has collaborate in and financed the conservation project in the lowlands close to river Sao Francisco, an area which potentially could shelter a future viable population of this species.
Currently, 78 Spix’s Macaws are living in captivity, and the latest reward came in January 2007 to Loro Parque Foundation, with the very much awaited birth of a Spix’s Macaw, a female in good health. The most charismatic of nestlings finally came into the world, giving again hope to the more sceptical! Loro Parque Foundation maintains, on behalf of the Brazilian Government, one breeding pair which produced two females in 2004, and one more in 2006.
Future breeding will be tried according to recommendations of the international studbook, in order to bring new blood.
