Aratinga euops
Cuban experts report the UN is currently carrying out a conservation project for Aratinga euops, an endemic bird in danger of extinction.

The initiative, taking place in the Guamuhaya Massif's Yaguanabo Valley in the center of the island, has allowed so far a substantial increase of that bird s population in the zone.

The existence of this species of bird and the construction of artificial nests has notably improved their presence in the territory, noted Pablo Hernandez, expert from the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment.

Aratinga euops lives today in the Zapata Swamp, the largest wetlands in the Caribbean, in addition to the Najasa Mountains in Camaguey, 311 miles of Havana.
