Endangered Animals: Great Green Macaw

The great green macaw—sometimes known as Buffon's macaw or the great military macaw—is now confined to lowland tropical rainforests in Central and South America. Its numbers have plummeted due to deforestation and the illegal pet trade, but the Rainforest Alliance's work is bringing conservationists together to protect this intelligent bird.
