Only 14 Orange bellies left!

This is, IMPO, a too short article and I do wish it was longer and more detailed because it talks about the fact that they have identified only 14 birds left in the wild (FOURTEEN!!!!), what they have been trying to do to restore the wild population and the problems they face. I wish I could say that I am encouraged by it but with only 14 left, I don't see a happy ending to this one.

What an awful shame. Is there enough habitat to introduce more parrots?
