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).
