For more than a decade, Lincoln Park Zoo has been working to ensure the survival of the critically endangered Puerto Rican parrot using science-based methodology. For the first time, Puerto Rican parrots now reside outside of the island and will serve as conservation ambassadors for the Puerto Rican Parrot Recovery Program, a multi-partner effort to save the species from extinction. Due to its commitment to this species, two male birds are now thriving at Lincoln Park Zoo's Small Mammal-Reptile House! www.lpzoo.org/blog/video-and-photos-wild-puerto-rican-parrots
