    Wild African grey parrots are disappearing from West and Central Africa. In Ghana, populations are estimated to have declined by 90-99 percent. In parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, and Republic of Congo, the birds have all but disappeared. Where have they gone? Criminal trafficking networks are taking them to supply the illegal pet trade. But the experience of being captured and smuggled is highly stressful. Only 1 in 20 of them survive it. We need to protect African grey parrots before it''s too late.

    They''re intelligent and highly social. And their ability to mimic all kinds of sounds, even human speech, has made African grey parrots hugely popular as pets. But their appeal to humans is now threatening their survival in the wild. Criminal trafficking networks supplying the pet trade are emptying forests across West and Central Africa. With a loud voice right now, we can make sure governments do the right thing and protect these birds.

    Tens of millions of bison once roamed the Plains, but the animals numbers had dropped precipitously by the turn of the 20th century. Fewer than 1,100 were left. It would be a real misfortune to let the species go extinct, President Theodore Roosevelt wrote in 1907. Luckily, bison survived thanks to the herculean efforts of a broad coalition of supporters. Last year, the bison was named our National Mammal. Today, it needs our help again. Via the link in our bio, urge the Senate to make National Bison Day a reality. It is important to honor this iconic animal. . . #bison #yellowstone #teddyroosevelt #nationalmammal #greatplains #endangered #nationalbisonday #america #resilient #recovery #roam
