St Lucia Amazon

The Saint Lucia Amazon is an endemic species of parrot that lives on the island nation for which it is named. These colorful bird are unfortunately vulnerable to extinction, threatened primarily by habitat loss. Conservation efforts are helping this species to come back from the brink of extinction. According to BirdLife International, "education and awareness programmes have turned the bird into a national symbol."
