How is Fauna & Flora helping to save the yellow-naped Amazon?
Saving yellow-naped amazons is about empowering communities.
Community-led team patrols are best placed to monitor breeding pairs, thwart poaching efforts and engage with residents to spread the word of the continual threat faced by this bird.
Fauna & Flora is working in Nicaragua with local communities to further understand yellow-naped amazon behaviour. This is to ensure conservation efforts are as effective as possible.
Furthermore, we are bolstering the parrot’s protection by encouraging communities to value them as part of their cultural heritage, rather than as pets. By engaging with children in schools and wider communities, we are driving interest in this beautiful bird, and raising awareness of its plight.
But we need your help to continue this invaluable work and save these wonderful animals.
