Save The Hyacinth Macaw
The Hyacinth Macaw is the largest of the several macaws, typically one meter in length. The largest parrot in the world, it is entirely blue, hence its name. By the 1980s, the population of the Hyacinth Macaw had dwindled to about 2,500 due to deforestation and the capturing of macaws for the pet trade. In the 1980s, it is estimated that 10,000 hyacinth macaws were taken for this purpose. The Foundation is considering a grant to the Hyacinth Macaw Project of Brazil to help with the repopulation of this endangered species.
