Behold, the gorgeous ❤️ Scarlet Macaw, ❤️ formally deemed “endangered“😱 on February 25th of this year. In its public notification that date, the federal government explained:

Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finalized Endangered Species Act (ESA) listing determinations for scarlet macaw.

… Scarlet macaws are brilliantly colored parrots native to Mexico and Central and South America. They have the broadest range of all the macaw species. However, the scarlet macaw’s range in Mesoamerica (Mexico and Central America) has been reduced over the past several decades primarily due to habitat destruction and harvesting the species for the pet trade.
