Hawk-headed Parrot: here’s the scoop
This species is suspected to lose 24-31% of suitable habitat within its distribution over the next 23 years. Fortunately, hawk-headed parrots are somewhat tolerant of fragmentation and edge-effects and are suspected to decline by less than 25%, but many other species that inhabit the rainforest may not be so lucky.
