Ara araruana

This species has an extremely large range, and despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, 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). Ara ararauna has been heavily traded.
