From collector to conservationist...

This is an interesting and actually, a slightly frustrating article about the efforts being made in trying to establish multiple breeding populations of the almost extinct Spix's Macaw. The sheikh's conversion from collector to conservationist is admirable, for sure; the politics involved in various parties shuffling around the last remaining specimens of the species is less so. In any case, there's more good news than bad here, so I recommend you give it a look.
