The Illegal Parrot Trade in Mexico: A Comprehensive Assessment is available (in English and Spanish) at this site: http://www.defenders.org/mexicanparrot/
This is one of the most detailed studies ever written on any illegal wildlife trade sector. It thoroughly analyzes the threat to Mexico's 22 parrot species posed by illegal trapping and proposes comprehensive policy solutions. Only major reforms in the laws, in law enforcement, and in the behavior of the main actors in the Mexican parrot trade - including the buying public - will restore these beautiful birds to stable populations in the wild.
