Less than a 1000 adult Cape parrots are left in the wild.  Dependent and evolved to live in yellowwood tree forests which covered the southern and eastern coasts of South Africa all the way to Mozambique, their forest habitat was eliminated by the colonization and development that required wood.  For more information and photos of the parrot click here to visit the National Geographic site.
