Despite being classified as an animal of least concern on the conservation status spectrum, there is apprehension that the global population of the green-winged macaw, as well as many other macaw species, is declining due to habitat loss and illegal capture. Thankfully, there are many laws, as well as sanctuaries and preserves, established to help protect the many different types of macaws. Be sure to take home a few of these figurines to start a flock of your own, but be warned – macaws can be exceptionally loud!
Due to trapping and trade issues, the Green Winged Macaw is a protected species. This bird is becoming increasingly popular as a household pet, both due to its wonderful temperament and its beautiful coloring.
