An expedition from Chester Zoo has returned to the UK after a successful mission to track down and discover more about a rare species of parrot in Ecuador. To discover more, the team headed to South West Ecuador to gather new information on the birds behaviour and feeding habits.
Its thought there are less than 600 of the parrots left in the wild. The zoo's director general, Dr Mark Pilgrim said "The data the team has returned with will hopefully be of great value in helping safeguard the long-term future of this species.”** **
