Pesquet's Parrot

But this is only one example among so many others. The essential purpose of Loro Parque Foundation is to protect parrots and their habitats by financing actions in the field and breeding programs, and by purchase of lands where endangered species maybe will be able to succeed in surviving while reproducing in a suitable habitat.

Why parrots? They are difficult to miss in the world! Obviously because a parrot, by its bright colours, its touching or comical expressions, and its easy contact with humans, is a bird which enchants us! Communication is quickly established with a little patience. The simple fact of photographing them in wild gives a gleam of interest in their eyes. Wary but curious, shy but gregarious, these birds charm us immediately.

But unfortunately, it is in the Psittacidae that we find the greatest number of endangered species.
These wonderful birds are living in regions were habitat loss is almost daily. It is why Loro Parque Foundation takes part in preservating, among the most endangered ecosystems in the world.
This conservation works is made in diverse ways including environmental education, ecological studies,parrot population management and their reintroduction into protected and suitable habitat.
