Parrot Action Plan


Gain a better understanding of the major threats to parrots throughout the world, along with proposals to help with their survival, with the Parrot Action Plan. This document is regarded as a blueprint for project funding and action in the field.

Thanks to the kind cooperation of the IUCN, we are able to make the entire contents of the "Parrot Action Plan" available to you on-line in a manner that will appear nearly identical to the printed version. PAP cover

Hard copies may be ordered directly through Island Press.

The sections of the plan available for download have been reformatted for ease of use on the internet. The resolution of the photographs is considerably reduced from the printed version.
