Africa's Most Endangered Parrot Fighting for Survival
That was very interesting.
So many people and animals displaced by our consumption of land and resources
"An often-fatal virus called psittacine beak and feather disease has also taken a toll. The virus’s origins are debated, but research suggests wild parrots may have caught it from captive birds kept in aviaries. "
The article states this about B&F disease (and of course blames it immediately on humans). I've read several articles about the fate of the Cape Parrots and the Beak and Feather disease is rampant, just like among the wild cockatoos in Australia, never have I seen deforestation as a cause of their decline, before good old Natioal Geographic.
The list of endangered animals is growing and that should alarm all of us.
Oh you can bet we are behind the endangerment of all animals.
My father did say there were less birds in Australia. We just thought they left because of the drought.
No problem with the corellas that are a block away from my moms house. There are so many that the tree looks likes its covered in snow.
