The Red-fronted Macaw is a highly endangered parrot. There are only about 150 birds left in the wild.
It is endemic to a small semi-desert mountainous area of Bolivia, situated about 200 km west of Santa Cruz. It is the only macaw to inhabit such a climatic zone. Most macaws nest in holes in large trees, however here there are no very large trees in its range so it nests in vertical fissures in cliff faces.
