Buy Bailey – Saint Lucia Amazon Online -For Sale
Bailey – Saint Lucia Amazon there may be no other island that is as easily recognizable as St. Lucia. Gros Piton and Petit Piton, its iconic twin volcanic summits, are well-known worldwide.
The summits are covered in dense forest, and they constitute a World Heritage site (next to the Soufriere volcano). Few climbers have tried to reach their heights because they are so steep and rough. The warm, clear waters of the Caribbean Sea arched the peaks on one side. Although the view appears serene, hurricanes frequently hit the island, upsetting the tranquility and carving a way through the woods.
You must have known we would eventually address the Caribbean parrots.
The stunning St. Lucia Amazon, with its green wings, electric blue face, scarlet breast, and colorful tail with yellow tips, should be the focus of your binoculars. It is the national bird of Saint Lucia and is a native of the island. However, this isn’t always the case, and within lies a tale.
In the treetops of the rainforest in the 1950s, nearly a thousand of these magnificent animals shrieked raucously to one another. Since 1849, the inhabitants’ term for the “Jacquot” has been protected by law.
The Jacquot became the official national bird of St. Lucia in 1978 when the government launched its “Protection through Pride” campaign. To support conservation efforts, they erected a parrot reserve and established stricter legislation. The initiative truly took off with the help of school programs, local companies, and citizen groups. Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves!
Project and Progress
The WPT was asked to send a parrot education bus to the Caribbean island of St. Lucia by Paul Butler of RARE Conservation. The Jacquot Express, a bus containing educational toys, films, and exhibits for kids to enjoy and learn from, was made available by the Trust. The bus was then delivered to members of the island’s forestry department and shipped out aboard a banana boat.
The St. Lucia Amazon is legally protected. Due to locals’ education and awareness, the bird has become a national symbol. There was a ban on hunting in protected forests (J. D. Gilardi in litt. 1999). A captive breeding effort has been running since 1975; by 1995, a total of 19 fledgling birds had emerged (Copsey 1995). It is necessary to conduct more research and keep the hunting restriction in place in protected forests.
