Dear Parrots magazine,

Corn waste

I was flabbergasted when I read in the last issue about the amount of waste the Hyacinth Macaw caused in South America, and had no idea of the massive amount of destruction.  I have always supported conservation projects and would never want to see a decline in the Hyacinth’s population, however, I can understand the frustration of the farmers whose livings rely on farming the corn.

But, of course, this is where our wildlife and mankind end up fighting for the same space.  It is the demand from us humans that creates these problems and I feel desperately sorry for the Hyacinths whose food sources we have helped to destroy.

So, although it is costing ‘us’ a lot of money to replace the corn, the problem is man made.   We are the cause of the problem, so we have to pay for it.
