  • Important message from BirdsCaribbean re: St Vincent Parrot


    Ellen Paul
    • Most of you have probably heard about the explosive eruptions of La Soufriere Volcano on St. Vincent. They began on April 9th and have continued almost daily. The dome collapsed on April 12th and pyroclastic flows began. The volcano is decimating nearby towns, agriculture, and rivers, and has blanketed the entire country in ash.  BirdsCaribbean has launched a crowd funding page to raise money to assist with rescue and rehab of the St Vincent Parrot.

    Dear Colleagues,

     

    Most of you have probably heard about the explosive eruptions of La Soufriere Volcano on St. Vincent. They began on April 9th and have continued almost daily. The dome collapsed on April 12th and pyroclastic flows began. The volcano is decimating nearby towns, agriculture, and rivers, and has blanketed the entire country in ash. 

     

    Right now the country is dealing with the humanitarian crises—evacuating people out of the danger zone and making sure that evacuees and all other residents have access to clean water and shelter. 

     

    We have been in touch with several of our colleagues and all are safe, thank goodness. 

     

    We don’t know how the threatened St. Vincent Parrot is doing and we don’t know what will happen with the volcano - it could continue to erupt for days or weeks. . . 

     

    We have been in touch with a few international organizations that are all concerned about the parrot and other wildlife and also the Forestry Dept in St. Vincent. We will follow the Forestry Dept's guidance and directives on what help is needed and when. Everything is complicated and more challenging with covid!

     

    Today we launched a crowd funding page to raise money to assist with rescue and rehab of the St Vincent Parrot. Read more on the site: bit.ly/Volcano-Relief-StVincent-Parrot
