Jardine Parrot – Species Information

Jardines Parrot

Poicephalus gulielmi

Also known as the Red-fronted Parrot, there are three slightly differentiated subspecies in discrete populations, two in lowlands and one in the eastern highlands of central Africa.

This species has a large range, and despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, and even though the species is described as “uncommon” in at least parts of its range, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations).

 

This species has been heavily traded: since 1976, 43,358 wild-caught individuals have been recorded in international trade (UNEP-WCMC CITES Trade Database, January 2005).

Moluccan Cockatoo – Species Information

Moluccan Cockatoo

Cacatua moluccensis

Also known as the Salmon-crested Cockatoo, this cockatoo qualifies as Vulnerable because, like other island cockatoos, it is a very popular cagebird and has suffered a rapid population decline as a result of trapping for trade, combined with deforestation in its small range.  By the 1980s the species was being extensively and unsustainably trapped for the cage-bird market, with an estimated 74,509 individuals exported from Indonesia between 1981 and 1990.  Moreover, this decline is projected to continue and perhaps accelerate.
