Thick-billed Parrot (Rhynchopsitta pachyrhyncha) Recovery Plan Addendum.

122 Seiten.

Recovery Strategy:

The thick-billed parrot has been absent from the U.S. for over 70 years and now only occurs in Mexico.  Thus, the focus of recovery conservation actions should occur inMexico.  Since the mid-1990s, conservation organizations and the Mexican government have been implementing conservation actions focused on research, monitoring, and protection of key breeding areas.  Furthermore, as part of a federal initiative, Mexico convened a group of parrot experts and in 2009 published a recovery plan (the PACE) addressing both the maroon-fronted and thick-billed parrots.  The focus of the PACE (CONANP 2009) is on extant populations of the thick-billed parrot; it does not address thick-billed parrot historical records or historical range in the U.S. Therefore, our approach in this Addendum to the PACE is to:

  • Summarize information on thick-billed parrot’s historical occurrence in the U.S.;
  • Synthesize or reference information (when feasible) from the PACE to formulaterecovery planning components as are required by the ESA;
  • Incorporate supplemental information received from Mexico and U.S. partners since publication of the PACE;
  • Identify broad actions necessary to address conservation of the species within its U.S. historical range;
  • Identify partnerships and opportunities to facilitate recovery of extant populations.
