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.
From IUCN Red List: The Red-fronted Macaw is listed as Endangered
on the IUCN Red List and was last assessed in 2013 by BirdLife International. This species has a very small and declining population. Conservative estimates of numbers suggest that all subpopulations are extremely small. It therefore qualifies as Endangered.
