Ramphastos Sulfuratus

  1. I love the colors of this majestic bird. It would be so sad to lose this species. Maybe the people of Mexico, Venezuela, and Columbia, could make money from making and selling beautiful things like this, instead of killing the real birds for financial gain.

    1. Hi Lee,

      Thank you for your comment. Yes, I love the Ramphastos Sulfuratus and its colors. I would love to see it in it’s natural habitat – in Costa Rica!

      It makes me sad that about 12.5 percent of the world’s 10,000 bird species are threatened with extinction. Habitat loss due to climate change, global warming and development are the main factors behind this. I read this article from the University of Utah (2012), “Climate Change Threatens Tropical Birds” that speaks about the need of research and conservation as well “societal change to reduce consumption, to control the emissions of greenhouse gases and to stop climate change.”

      I believe that we should all aim towards shaping our lifestyles so that it will have the minimum impact on the environment – or none whatsoever – in order for us to enjoy a healthy life on a healthy planet. No one can do it all but we all can do something.
