Hyancinth Macaws

The Hyacinth Macaw is the largest species in the macaw family (Macaws are a type of parrot). The Hyacinth Macaw eats nuts, seeds, fruits and other vegetable matter.

Hyacinth Macaws live in Brazil and are highly endangered due to habitat loss, overcollection for the pet trade, and by the use of their feathers by the Kayapo Indians in southern Brazil. These Indians use the feathers to make headdresses for the tourist trade

The Mongabay Kids site (kids.mongabay.com) aims to help children learn about rainforests and the environment. This site is still under development and I am working to add additional content as time permits. If you have comments or are interested in submitting educational content for the site, please feel free to contact me.

The site is available in many different languages, including Portuguese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, and German.
