Cape Parrots are endemic to South Africa and find themselves threatened by food shortages, disease outbreaks and illegal capture for the wild-caught bird trade. All South Africans must stand behind our "green-and-gold" parrot and support the Percy FitzPatrick Institute and Wild Bird Trust in their work to solve the problems facing the Cape Parrot. Plant a yellowwood. Sponsor a yellowwood grove. Sponsor a Cape Parrot nest box. Most importantly, go and SEE a Cape Parrot for yourself...

Along with BirdLife South Africa, the World Parrot Trust Africa, and Africa Geographic, the Cape Parrot Project aims to stimulate positive change for Cape Parrots and the forest they depend upon by planting thousands of indigenous trees, erecting hundreds of nest boxes, and finding ways to mitigate the effects of beak and feather disease on the wild population.

For more information on how you can support the Cape Parrot Project, please visit www.wildbirdtrust.com or contact Dr Steve Boyes using: (steve@wildbirdtrust.com)
