Rescuing the Endangered Cape Parrot
One more bird saved from disease. One more place to call home. With less than 1,000 adult Cape parrots left in the wild, Steve Boyes has to make conservation count. From personally rehabilitating birds with a devastating disease to building nest sites in their increasingly degraded natural habitat, he puts his heart and soul into an otherwise scientific enterprise. These colorful parrots are one of the world's most endangered species, but Boyes hopes they can bounce back with the help of a team of scientists and volunteers.
