Varga for Bolivia, who requested to work directly with Armonia for 2010. The campaign was expanded to include more locations in 2010 and various national organisations such as the equivalent of the British Bar Association in Bolivia have taken notice and have become supportive.


Parrot Environmental Education in Columbia


The “Loro Bus - Parrot Bus driving conservation“ project with its slingshot amnesty campaign operated by ProAves in Colombia and supported by the Parrot Society UK won a prestigious international award, the National Energy Globe. In 2008 769 projects from 111 nations were submitted and the best from each nation was honoured with a National Energy Globe. They were presented at an international gala ceremony held in Prague in the Czech Republic on 13th April.


The Yellow-shouldered Amazon in Bonaire The Yellow-shouldered Amazon (Amazona barbadensis) is recognized by the IUNC as vulnerable to the threat of extinction (BirdLife International 2010). Venezuelan populations appear to be in decline whereas on Bonaire the population is increasing and estimated to be around 800 individuals (January 2010 roost count).


Yellow-shouldered Amazons do not construct their own nest and therefore depend on cavities of sufficient size. Consequently, nesting areas are found in tree and cliff cavities and are generally located away from residential areas. The breeding season begins in April and continues until September. Eggs are incubated for approximately 27 days and chicks remain in the nest cavity for a further 60 days before fledging (Williams, 2009). Various threats impact on the breeding birds including illegal poaching.
