Killing of Dracula parrots by poachers.

Sadly, The Dracula parrot is left in very few numbers. Because the hunter kills him for his beautiful red feather that they use in dresses. Moreover, The parrot is unique so many capture them to sell. in that case they live their rest of life in amusing others by staying in cages.

Moreover, It is one of three parrots that do not have feathers on their faces, and scientist believes that the absence of feathers around its beak and eyes is the parrot’s way of preventing its face from matting with the sticky fruit pulp it feeds on.

According to Red List:

Hunting for feathers has increased with population growth. Current rates of decline due to hunting are uncertain but could be relatively minor, and the species appears secure in large areas of suitable habitat in central and western mainland Papua New Guinea, much of which occurs in rugged terrain in areas with a low human population density.”
