Pro-Forest Foundation Executive Director, Eric Horstman was interviewed recently by Sarah Leon of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, to hear the podcast, please go to this link http://www.fws.gov/endangered/about/ep_30_2012.html. The great green macaw is one of four macaw species that were proposed for listing on July 6th, 2012 by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service under the U.S. Endangered Species Act (the other macaw species include hyacinth, military and scarlet macaw). If the great green macaw is officially listed under the U.S. Endangered Species Act, it will represent an important step forward to extend protection in the United States for the species, which is threatened by capture of macaws for the illegal pet trade and habitat destruction in the lowland rain and dry forests where it is found throughout its range from Honduras to Ecuador.
