New Educational Website for WPT

Starting in 2006, dozens of CWPT volunteers spent hundreds of hours over 18 months to construct the new website for the World Parrot Trust at http://www.parrots.org. This educational website is now used by all branches of the Trust and is visited by thousands of parrot enthusiasts each month.

Aiding efforts to save the Blue Throated Macaw

In 2005, the CWPT purchased a digital camera for use by researchers studying the Blue-throated Macaws in Bolivia. The camera is used for identification purposes, as the facial markings on each bird are unique. To learn more about this effort and the efforts to save the Blue-throated Macaw please visit:

Black-cheeked Lovebird

In 2003 the CWPT sponsored work by research Louise Warburton from the University of Natal, South Africa to investigate the ecology of the Black-cheeked Lovebird (Agapornis nigrigenis) in the wild. Prior to this study little was known about the ecology of this parrot or other members of the genus Agapornis. The Black-cheeked Lovebird is classified as Vulnerable and has suffered a severe population decline and reduced distribution, from which, for largely speculative reasons, it has never recovered. The overall aim of this project was to elucidate the basic biology of the Black-cheeked Lovebird and determine the conservation actions which are necessary to conserve the species in the wild.
