Working Together to Preserve the Yellow-Headed Parrot
Working Together to Preserve the Yellow-Headed Parrot
While most species of yellow-headed parrots nest in palm trees, amazona ochrocephala belizensis nests in pine tress. The habitat where these birds are found is the pine savanna areas of Belize, an ecosystem presently very much understudied. The project will provide a strategy which would create an atmosphere of conservation awareness about the species, as well as to have the people who live in the area practice in the conservation of the birds and their habitat. Targeted to receive this particular environmental message is the school and community residents of La Democracia, located within the same ecosystem as the yellow-headed parrots.
