History [ edit ]

Macaws are an endangered species due to the destruction of the rainforest and their capture by humans for illegal trading. Only the Blue and Gold Macaw isn´t listed at CITES as endareged specie in the wild. The Spix's Macaw has only seven surviving specimens in captivity and, as well as the Glaucous Macaw, it´s probably extinct in the wild.

Temperament [ edit ]

Macaws are very social and intelligent animals. They need lots of attention and toys to chew. If not, they may get destructive and “attack” their cage or anything they can get their bills on.

They half a century or more, if properly nurtured, and they create strong bonds with the owner.

They have loud callings and need to be trained
