Here are a few of the many endangered species:
Puerto Rican Parrot
The last remaining native bird of the island of Puerto Rico is the Amazona vittata (the Puerto Rican parrot). Their habitat has been eradicated due to the construction of cities and farms, deforestation and natural disasters. As of August 15, 1999, they are protected by Law 421 (Wildlife Law of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico) and by the Regulation number 6766, which made illegal the possession, sale or purchase of these birds.
