With only 73 Spix Macaw left in the world every bird is vital to the continuation of the species. Hunted to extinction in the wild for the sake of rich owners wanting a ‘trophy’ bird, it was the human race who destroyed them. Now, with their numbers increasing in a captive breeding program, it is the human race who could save these beautiful, intelligent, innocent birds. Let us hope that we are as sucessful in saving them as we were in destroying them.
