Fundación Jocotoco has joined efforts with other organizations to protect the Lilacine Amazon (Amazona lilacina), an endangered species native to Ecuador. Thanks to the Parrot Wildlife Foundation we can expand the monitoring program of the roosting and nesting sites of this unique species. During the following phase we will work with the community of Las Balsas to raise awareness on problems related to illegal parrot trade and deforestation.

Almost half of the Lilacine Amazon's population is located at Las Balsas. Therefore, this monitoring is crucial to identify the roosting and nesting sites for future protection. This project is also supported by Rainforest Trust, American Bird Conservancy, ZGAP, Auckland Zoo, and Fundación Loro Parque.
