Call it anthropomorphism, but any movies that brings Spix’s Macaws to the attention of the general public and highlights the reasons they are now extinct in the wild is a good thing! The first movie showed the evils of poachers and the black market wildlife trade. The second movies highlights the ravages of deforestation by illegal loggers. What I really loved about this interview is that Russ Mittermeier, the president of Conservation International has actual footage of the last wild Spix’s Macaw!. I blogged about them a couple years ago and where they used to be found in Brazil. I hope that someday, they will fly freely and safely there again!
